Voyager Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Voyager Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

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 2014 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 of the highest order that was a worthy inclusion in Halliday's Top 100. Demand for this wine is incredibly high and we expect our limited stocks to go quickly.

"98 Points. 90% cabernet sauvignon, 6% merlot and 4% petit verdot. Deep, bright purple-crimson hue; the expressive indeed, perfumed bouquet pointing the way for the elegant medium-bodied palate, where juicy fruit, oak and tannins are fused seamlessly together. An appropriate wine for Voyager's 40th anniversary, certain to celebrate its 50th. The difficulty will be keeping your hands off it. Price when Tasted: $85.00 Date when Tasted: 10 Sep 2018 Alcohol: 14 % Drink By: 2028 Closure: Screwcap" - James Halliday, Halliday Top 100 Wines 2018.

"95 Points. Labelled as cabernet sauvignon (only) though there is some merlot in the mix. A beauty. Cabernet to the nth degree. So well structured, so well fruited. Blackcurrant, bay leaves, whispers of both milk and dark chocolate, black olives. It’s juicy, it’s substantial, it’s drawn with firm, fine, sweet tannin. Pretty much a certainly to perform well in the cellar. Tasted: Feb19 Alcohol: 14% Price: $85 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2032+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
