Voyager | Old Block Cabernet Sauvignon
Current Vintage: 2015
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine comes from a single block of Cabernet Sauvignon, called 'Old Block V9', which is the original plantings on the Estate (established in 1978). The low yields from these old vines has produced a wine of richness and chocolaty depth (this also reflects the deep loamy soil in this vineyard). Matured in 50% new and 50% two-year-old tight-grained French oak for 18 months.
Despite viticulture being barely 50 years old (with the first vines being planted in the 1960’s), the Margaret River wine region has firmly established itself as a global rising star. The climate of the region is so befitting to winemaking (and similar to the French region) that it is commonly called Australia’s answer to Bordeaux.
The vignerons of Australia’s west coast have quickly harnessed this ancient terroir, which is suited perfectly to viticulture, and now produce 25% of Australia’s premium wine. Amongst other varietals, the elegant Cabernets, Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blanc of the Margaret River won’t disappoint even the most discerning of tastebuds.
