Voyager Estate Project Rose 2018 (6 x 750mL) Margaret River, WA

Description:

Vintage

Following several years of early vintages and the exceptionally late 2017, it was very nice to have a 'normal' season again. Excellent budburst across all varieties was followed by a beautifully warm November, which provided ideal conditions for flowering and very good fruit set. Summer proved to be quite mild with just a few hot days, particularly in December, which was also one of the wettest recorded. Cool, dry conditions in the lead-up to harvest enabled fruit to ripen slowly, accumulating intense varietal flavours whilst retaining natural acidity and our whites were all harvested in excellent condition. The warmer March weather saw the reds ripen beautifully and they were harvested under clear, sunny skies through March and early April with ripe, concentrated flavours and excellent fine-grained powdery tannins.

Vineyard

The two key Shiraz vineyards which contributed to this wine are planted to different clones. Ullingers Block 8 is planted to 12SBVRC clone and gives earthy, savoury notes to the wine while Weightmans Block 3, planted to the PT15 clone, offers a brighter, fresh berry component. A small percentage of Merlot is also utilised for its fresh berry and dried herb characters as well as Sauvignon Blanc, which provides fresh aromatic lift. All these Estate vineyards are planted on the classic gravelly, stony soils for which the region is famous - producing balanced vines with moderate yields.

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.
