This impeccably run Estate crafts a set of wines that ooze style and class. Even better, the quality just keeps getting better and better, reflecting the continual evolution in the vineyard and winery. It was Michel 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.
91% cabernet sauvignon, 6% merlot, 3% petit verdot, hand-picked and destemmed to retain whole berries, primary fermentation for 16 days, with some batches held on skins for 21 days, the parcels kept separate during 20 months maturation in French oak (50% new). A powerful, dense wine full of rich, plushy fruit, seemingly riper than Girt by Sea, when the opposite is the case - or perhaps it's just the greater intensity and drive. This will certainly improve with further time (5+ years) in bottle. Drink to: 2037; Date Tasted: Jan 2016; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
