Voyager's seven Shiraz blocks comprise five different clones, planted to some of the toughest, shallow, gravelly soils which reduce the inherent vigour of this variety. With the cooling sea breezes off the Indian Ocean and intensive viticultural management, including crop thinning and green thinning, the vines are sensitively managed to produce Shiraz grapes with impressive fruit characters. Small batch fermentation and gentle winemaking techniques are employed to ensure the fruit aromatics are respected, that the fine tannins are preserved and intense colour is extracted from the grapes. The final wine is treated to a year's maturation in a selection of French and American oak barrels.
Dark crimson with vibrant purple hues. Lifted aromas of black and blueberries, creme brulee and dried flowers over hints of dusty vanillin oak. A long and balanced mouthfeel with fantastic rich black fruits on the middle palate. Gravelly earthy notes, hints of spice and anise intertwine with sweet vanillin, black olives and cedary oak, all complemented by soft powdery tannins.
