Hard to believe that Voyager Estate have a “2nd” Brand, so let’s simply call the Girt By Sea wines their “Entry Level.” Dang, what an entrance.
Voyager Estate, Girt By Sea, Cabernet, Merlot, Margaret River, 2014
New, one and 2 year old French and American oak. Already 3 years of age upon release, the steel of MR Cabernet tempered somewhat by the anvil of the more readily accesable merlot. Rich umami underscoring fallen eucalypt, dark chocolate, fig, blackberry, mulberry, violets, cigar smoke and molasses. Medium bodied, a caramel/vanilla American oak note pierces through the dark berry compote and purple, awash with fine tea tannin and finishing long with that dark figgy chocolate. Served with braised beef cheeks.
