96 Points - James Halliday
As one of Margaret River's most highly acclaimed wineries, the wines of Voyager Estate rarely fail to impress. This newly released 2018 Voyager Estate Shiraz is another brilliant example of the lofty heights Margaret River Shiraz is capable of reaching.
The palate is silky textured with plenty of sweet red, black cherry fruits with hints of spice, nougat and fine tannins. Offering lovely purity and fleshy concentration, while retaining the finesse that is the hallmark of the Voyager style. While this is a wine with a long life ahead of it, it's pretty irresistible now.
"96 Points. For some (not myself) the jury is still out in deciding just how far Margaret River shiraz has still to travel before drawing the proverbial line in the sand. Yes, it's more elegant, and arguably less complex than cabernet or cabernet with little tricks in the wrapping of its parcel. But is that a bad thing? The answer is emphatically no for this whole berry-vinified wine that spent 15 days on skins, then 12 months in 34% new oak. Its savoury characters are, quite simply, brilliant. $38. 14% alc. Drink by 2033. Screwcap" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021.
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.
