This 2016 Voyager Estate Girt By Sea Cabernet Merlot is one of the more impressive releases we've tasted, delivering classic regional flavours of blackcurrant, dark cherry and milk chocolate on soft, well structured palate. Fans of Margaret River Cabernet will find plenty to enjoy about this release from Voyager Estate.

"92 Points. A raw and powerful wine that pours itself over all-comers, filling the mouth with crushed red and black berries, acidity and tannins balanced, but still standing apart from the fruit. Needs time to get things sorted out, but has the potential to reward patience. 14% alc Drink By: 2036 Screwcap" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.

Voyager Estate is located in the premium wine producing region of Margaret River, Western Australia. Latest statistics show that, although only producing 4% of Australia's wine by volume, Margaret River wines account for 23% of the country's premium wine production. Voyager Estate is proud to be among the select wineries that contribute to this production.

Voyager's oldest vines date back to 1978, just over 10 years after vines were first planted in the area. When current owner, Michael Wright, took over the property in 1991, he set out to expand it and develop a visitor destination that would be a showcase for the region. He also set out to ensure that, above all else, the quality of wine being made at Voyager Estate would always be the best that nature, expertise and pure hard work could provide.

NOSE: Lifted berry fruit aromas combine with hints of violets and spice, flowing through to some dusty cedar notes.

PALATE: A rich, smooth palate with complex layers of red and dark berry fruits. The palate is soft and generous with hints of vanilla, spice and chocolate, supported by fine-grained tannins and perfectly integrated French oak.

FOOD MATCH: Light enough for cold meats or tartare, yet intense enough for smoky barbequed red meats.
