CABERNET MERLOT MAGIC
We are thrilled to share that our new release 2020 Girt by Sea Cabernet Merlot has been awarded 94 points by Ray Jordan for prominent Australian drinks guide, Winepilot.com.
A near-perfect growing season, beautifully warm spring weather and one of the hottest Decembers on record all combined to produce a truly exceptional 2020 vintage for Voyager Estate.
‘Mighty good wine for this price. In fact, it's better than that. Clearly the vintage has influenced it because it was a cracker in Margaret River. But the mature gravelly influenced vineyards of the Steven's Valley also contribute. Has a bright and lively red berry character supported by fine chalky tannins and a well-managed oak integration. Balanced and poised in its more medium bodied style, which is perfectly suited for drinking over the next few years. Strike up the barbie' – Ray Jordan, 94 points.
Our Girt by Sea range of wines pay homage to our Estate’s organically farmed coastal vines and our prevailing maritime influence – the long warm summers with cooling afternoon sea breezes, allowing the grapes to reach optimal ripeness.
The 2020 Girt by Sea Cabernet Merlot is fresh, vibrant and approachable, perfect for a mid-week pour or to pair with Friday night pizza.
