Winemaker Notes

Lifted floral and berry fruit aromas with hints of spice and vanillan tones that flow through to dusty cedar notes influenced by the fine-grained French oak. A rich, smooth palate with complex layers of dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit. The palate is soft and juicy with hints of vanilla, spice and nougat, supported by fine-grained tannins and perfectly integrated French and American oak.

Pairs well with Black Angus beef fillet hibachi, tempura mushrooms, pickled daikon, kewpie mayonnaise.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 90
Vinous
Deep ruby. A complex, perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries and peppery spices, with hints of tobacco and vanilla emerging with aeration. Juicy, incisive blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors stretch out slowly and become sweeter with air. Shows very good clarity and lift on the persistent finish, which is given shape by harmonious tannins. This blend is already approachable, especially with a bit of aeration.

Voyager Estate is a small, second-generation, family-owned estate in Stevens Valley, Margaret River, Western Australia. Currently undergoing full organic conversion, their Estate is one of Australia’s most ambitious and innovative producers of world-class Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. All wines are 100% estate-grown, made and bottled, and reflect the unique qualities of Stevens Valley, with its undulating slopes, warm summers and cooling maritime breezes. Their aim is to shine a light on what makes their unique place in Margaret River so special. Both through how they grow and make their wine, and how they share and experience it. In doing so, they hope to help lead the way in establishing this very special place as one of the world’s great wine regions and experiences. Lead by Head of Winemaking and Viticulture Steve James, Steve is the custodian of a rich winemaking tradition, fostered by close collaboration between the winemaking and viticulture teams. Steve’s winemaking philosophy starts in the vineyards. From the outset, Steve has focused on sustainable farming, vine balance, clonal selection, and vineyard management in close collaboration with the winery team. This focus has allowed the vines to shine and become more adept at expressing the purity and character of the individual vineyard blocks.

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. Complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are another regional specialty. Also common here are refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as earthy, aromatic Bordeaux Red Blends.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
