VOYAGER ESTATE GIRT BY SEA CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Voyager Estate is a small second generation, family-owned estate in Stevens Valley, Margaret River, Western Australia. Established in 1978, they celebrated 40 years since the original plantings. Currently undergoing full organic conversion, Voyager Estate is one of Australia’s most ambitious and innovative producers of world-class Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. All wines are estate grown and reflect the unique qualities of the Stevens Valley, with its undulating slopes, warm summers and cooling maritime breezes. Their aim is to produce wines of elegance and precision, that do justice to Margaret River, one of the world’s greatest wine regions.
Voyager Estate Girt by Sea is produced primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes sourced from the North Block and Weightmans vineyards. The gentle rolling gravelly hills provide the perfect soils for growing vines with excellent natural balance and moderate yields. All of the vineyards are managed following a sustainable and natural approach to viticulture, with a focus on building a healthy and resilient vineyard through the use of natural products and the encouragement of bio diversity. There is also a component of Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot utilised in this blend from two premium selected vineyards. The Estate vineyards are planted to four different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon which contribute slightly different fruit profiles to the final wine. The vines are all meticulously trained to a vertical shoot positioned canopy and are hand pruned, shoot thinned and green thinned prior to harvest.
This is the second Cabernet Sauvignon blend in the Voyager Estate portfolio. Approachable in its youth, it presents a soft, rounded mid-palate with a subtle, lightly-structured tannin profile. The warm 2013 vintage resulted in a wine that displays excellent concentration of vibrant, summer berry, plum and cherry fruit with soft, silky tannins. Made to be enjoyed on release, this wine will also develop additional complexity over the short to medium-term.
