Margaret River's Voyager Estate has firmly established themselves as one of Australia's leading exponents of Cabernet Sauvignon; their 'Girt by Sea' Cabernet Merlot regularly delivers high quality drinking at a very reasonable price.
This 2018 Voyager Estate Girt By Sea Cabernet Merlot is one of the more impressive releases we've tasted. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, this delivers classic regional flavours of blackcurrant, dark cherry and milk chocolate on soft, well structured palate.
Matured in a combination of new, two and three year seasoned oak for 12 months, fans of Margaret River Cabernet will find plenty to enjoy about this release from Voyager Estate.
"93 Points. First you smell, then taste, a wine that shows McLaren Vale doesn't have the field all on its own. It has the range of flavours that are typical, and superfine, but persistent and slightly savoury, tannins. $28. 14.5% alc. Drink by: 2030. Screwcap" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
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.
