Voyager Estate | The Project Releases Rose
Current Vintage: 2019
Voyager's 2019 Project Ros combines 74% Shiraz, 15% Merlot, 8% Viognier and 3% Tempranillo all from Estate-owned, organically farmed sites. Each containing gravelly, stony soils. The fruit was gently pressed to extract a free-run component with minimal colour, and the Viognier was co-fermented to add textural complexity and lifted aromatics. The wine was left on lees for two months prior to filtration and bottling in August 2019.
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.
