Perfect Pairings: Marron + Margaret River SBS

Indulge in a South West delicacy with this delicious marron recipe paired with a crisp white from our winemaker, Damon.

Endemic to the South West of WA, these distinctive freshwater crayfish are appreciated for their sweet, delicate flavour. The tradition of fishing for marron has long been a part of WA culture and can only be legally caught during a brief season each year, typically between early January and February.

"With this dish I prefer a light crisp white, try our Sauvignon Blanc Semillon. It's fresh and lively and goes well with the aromatic lemongrass in the dish."

Marron steamed with Thai broth
