A collation of fruit from the Voyager North Block and Weightmans vineyards at Margaret River, enhanced by a choice component from the eminent precinct of Wilyabrup. Vines planted to gently rolling gravel hills and managed to restrained yields achieve the finest harvests. Girt by Sea is a seemless Cabernet Merlot wine in suave Margaret River styling, vigorously fruit driven and seductively soft, its ripe tannins offer sensational early drinking, it will thrill all who indulge in this most satisfying West Australian accord of noble red grapes.
The viticultural team employ maximum vine management in terms of canopy maintenance, aiming for low bud numbers and small bunches per vine for premium fruit quality, clonal selection is also an area of close attention. Parcels of Merlot and Cabernet are de-stemmed but remain uncrushed, to preserve whole berries, into a mix of open and static fermenters. Gentle hand plunging and pumpovers were employed up to three times a day throughout a fortnight's vinification at temperatures under 25˚C. Upon completion, batches are pressed off skins into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak barrels for a year's maturation.
TASTING NOTES
Dark crimson red. Lifted bouquet of cassis and mulberries, dusty briar notes, hints of cedar and vanillin from the fine grained oak. An elegant wine of excellent flavour concentration, juicy, ripe fruit, blackberries, dark cherry and mulberry. Silky tannins integrate seamlessly, gently oaked and subtley spiced, the fine, comforting tannins taper to a structured, clean finish.

More About Voyager Estate Winery
Voyager Estate is located in the premium wine producing region of Margaret River
Voyager Estate began life as Freycinet Estate, its first vines being planted in 1978. When it became Voyager Estate in 1991, the first move was to expand the original 44 hectares by buying three adjoining properties, bringing the total area to 300 hectares. Over the next few years a program of extensive modernization and improvement was undertaken. Taking pride of place is a magnificent cellar sales building, constructed in the enduring South African Cape Dutch style of architecture. The choice of this handsome and functional style of architecture reminds visitors that the first vines planted in Western Australia in 1829 were introduced from South Africa. The expansive gardens are now maturing and transforming Voyager Estate into a place of singular tranquility and beauty. Voyager Estate»
