96 Points - Erin Larkin
Margaret River's Voyager Estate has firmly established itself as one of Australia's leading exponents of Cabernet Sauvignon. This exceptional 2017 Voyager Estate Cabernet Sauvignon release comes from hand-harvested parcels of fruit from Voyager Estate's very best vineyard blocks.
These two vineyards display exceptional consistency from season to season and showcase clear vineyard site expression, producing Cabernet with great intensity and individuality. This Cabernet was blended with a small portion of Merlot and Petit Verdot; the Merlot contributes flesh and earthiness to the mid palate whilst the Petit Verdot adds great aromatics with violet nuances - the result is a Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon of the highest order.
"96 Points. Mainly a blend of 2 vineyards: Block 12 and Old Block, with a small parcel of Weightmans Block 5. Vinified separately, matured in oak for 18 months. Having stood in all 3 source vineyards, each component is clear in this wine: density from the Old Block, suppleness from the Block 12 and red fruits and brine from the Weightmans Block. Savoury, long, fine-knit and of supreme elegance. It's not intense cabernet, but it is persistent and very long. Screw cap. 14% alc. To 2041. $85."- Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion 2022.
Margaret River's Voyager Estate produces an outstanding range of wines that ooze style and class; pleasingly the quality just keeps getting better reflecting the continual evolution in the vineyard and winery.
It was Michael Wright who immaculately built this property into the beacon it has become today. While Voyager's founder and visionary sadly passed away in 2012, he left a powerful legacy of an absolute commitment to quality that today pervades every corner of Voyager. The Estate remains family owned, with Michael’s daughter, Alex Burt (nee Wright), matching her father's fanatical attention to detail with an environmental conscience that has opened another important chapter in the history of this Estate.
Voyager Estate is well-known for crafting some of Australia's finest Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, while their Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Shiraz and Chenin Blanc are regularly lauded as benchmark examples for the Margaret River region. Some terrific value is also to be found under the 'Girt By Sea' range, with a Cabernet Merlot and Chardonnay regularly bottled under this entry-level label by Voyager Estate.
