Voyager Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Voyager Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    13.5%

Margaret River's Voyager Estate has firmly established itself as one of Australia's leading exponents of Cabernet Sauvignon. This exceptional 2015 Voyager Estate Cabernet Sauvignon release comes from hand-harvested parcels of fruit from Voyager Estate's very best vineyard blocks.

These two vineyards display exceptional consistency from season to season and showcase clear vineyard site expression, producing Cabernet with great intensity and individuality. This Cabernet was blended with a small portion of Merlot and Petit Verdot; the Merlot contributes flesh and earthiness to the mid palate whilst the Petit Verdot adds great aromatics with violet nuances - the result is a Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon of the highest order

"96 Points. 50% new French oak. It's as much about texture and length as it is about flavour, though there's certainly no shortage of the latter. It tastes of dark chocolate and coffee, blackcurrant and black licorice, with gum leaf notes adding lift. Tannin. We need to talk about tannin. It's so fine and yet so firm in this wine; it's like a wise old cope, perfect in its under-zealous application of the law. What we have here is a wine perfectly positioned to age magnificently. $85.00 14% alc. Drink By: 2044 Screwcap" - Campbell Mattinson, winecompanion.com.au.

VINTAGE: A challenging growing with variable weather conditions. An unseasonably warm end to winter led to early bud-burst, followed by a cooler and windier spring, resulting in yield reduction. A consistently warm summer assisted with early tannin ripeness and balanced flavour development but meant harvest timing was critical to ensure peak varietal expression.

WINEMAKING NOTES: Cabernet Sauvignon is our heart and soul. It reflects our coastal vineyards and the natural purity of our remote environment. The smallest details are scrutinised throughout the viticulture and winemaking process, hand-selecting fruit from our best Cabernet blocks to create a true site expressive wine.
