A rich and concentrated effort with driven fruit and silky tannins, defining a style of it's very own. Small batch fermentation and sensitive winemaking practices are employed to allow quality of fruit from to be fully expressed. An impressive Margaret River wine which continues the evolution of Shiraz at Voyager Estate.
After years of focused viticulture, trimming and irrigation strategies, Voyager have struck a balance in plantings that once grew wild, allowing vines to concentrate their energies on quality grapes rather than plant growth. This ensures that the fresh primary fruit characters are retained, avoiding any over ripe jammy flavours which Shiraz is prone to developing. Treated to inoculation and vinification in a collection of traditional open fermenters, temperatures are maintained at around 26C to 28C thereby protecting aromatics and extract a lesser amount of the harsher tannins. Following completion of ferments, Voyager is matured for a year in a combination of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels.
TASTING NOTES
Dark crimson with vibrant purple hues. Lifted aromas of blackberry, blueberries and black olive with hints of anise and dusty, vanillin oak. A rich, concentrated and generous palate displaying vibrant flavours of blackberry, blueberries, blood plum and dark cherry with nuances of anise and spice. The tannins are fine and silky, integrating seamlessly with hints of cedar and vanillin.

More About Voyager Estate Wines
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»
