You’ll notice that this Confidential 2017 Margaret River Shiraz is a little different. No, we’re not talking about the impressive 95-point score from legendary David Bicknell, or the serious savings off the recommended retail price (although those are pretty interesting, too).


This red, from a Jimmy Watson-winning winery, was tipped as an export and labelled as such before the order was cancelled at the last minute. That’s why we can double down on value, offering it at 41% off RRP if you buy in dozens. Their loss, your gain.


The origin story of this Confidential is intriguing, and the wine inside even moreso. David Bicknell calls it ‘thoughtfully made’ (he’d know). There’s some whole bunch in there, and some sun-dried stems, all wild fermented. It’s elegant, it’s got structure, and it’s all spice, red fruit, and a lick of aniseed.

Region Margaret River

Margaret River Located three hours south of Perth, Margaret River is Western Australia’s most prestigious wine-growing region. Serious vineyard development began only in the late 1960’s following the publication of a report by John Gladstones in 1965 stating that the area had a similar climate to Pomerol or St Emilion, with low frost risk, plenty of sunshine and equable temperatures within the growing season promoting even ripening. Margaret River’s climate is warm and maritime, with some cooling influence provided by southeast trade winds. The soils derive from granitic and a gneissic rock over which laterite has formed. The region can be divided in three sub-regions: the cooler south between Yallingup and Karridale with predominantly lateritic gravelly loamy sands and sandy loams; the warm and sunnier Willyabrup in the centre with predominantly gravelly loams, but some gritty sandy loams and granitic gravels; and Margaret River in the north with similar soils, but slightly cooler tem

This is entirely consistent with style; the wines from Willyabrup being more generous than the highly structured wines of the north and the elegant styles of the south. Margaret River is best known for high quality Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blends and top notch Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux blends. Over the years, the region has established an astonishing reputation illustrating a consistency in quality and a strongly focused winemaking culture.
