Voyager Estate Girt by Sea Cabernet Merlot 2015 (6 x 750mL) Margaret River

Description:

Vintage

The region experienced quite a challenging growing season due to some variable weather conditions. An unseasonably warm end to the winter period led to early bud burst across all varieties which was followed by a cooler and windier than normal spring, resulting in natural yield reduction. Consistently warm conditions during the summer assisted with excellent early tannin ripeness in the reds whilst allowing time for balanced flavour development. Yields were 20 to 30% below average across all varieties which allowed the fruit to move through flavour profiles quite rapidly and harvest timing was critical to ensure the fruit was captured at peak varietal expression. Voyager Estate is delighted with the wines from the season. Despite the more challenging season experienced, the consistent quality that is the hallmark of Voyager Estate and Margaret River is once again outstanding.

Vineyard

The Girt by Sea Cabernet Merlot is produced primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, sourced from our sustainably farmed North Block and Weightmans vineyards, located near the coast in the Wallcliffe sub-region in Margaret River. The gentle rolling, gravelly hills provide the perfect soils and microclimates for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, producing vines with excellent natural balance and moderate yields. The Estate vineyards are planted with 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.

Winery Profile

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. Our 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. We leave it for wine lovers and our visitors to judge for themselves.
