- Voyager Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
"If ever there was a doubt that there was a new top-level name in Margaret River cabernet, Voyager Estate’s 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot puts that doubt to rest. Classically structured around a firm spine of powdery tannins, it revels in its complex perfume of violets, dark cherries and cassis, which it follows up with a sumptuously fruited and handsomely oaked palate backed by appealing undertones of dried herbs and forest floor.Sited close to Leeuwin Estate south of the Margaret River township, Voyager Estate has faced a similar struggle in this cooler macroclimate to achieve full ripeness with its red Bordeaux varieties, but has succeeded more handsomely than its better-known neighbour. Signs that it was likely to turn the corner from some finely crafted but essentially herbaceous reds from the early to mid 1990s came with the stellar 1997 vintage, which has in turn been surpassed by wines from the 2001 and 2002. Western Australian mining magnate Michael Wright has owned Voyager Estate since 1991, and has since ploughed a significant fortune into its underground cellars, vineyards, landscaping and new Cape Dutch-styled buildings. Led by its Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot, the estate is now matching the expectations it generates with results in the bottle."Jeremy Oliver, 24/1/2006, Eight Emerging Australian Classics

5 Star Winery - Halliday Wine Companion
"This impeccably run Estate crafts a set of wines that ooze style and class. Even better, the quality just keeps getting better and better, reflecting the continual evolution in the vineyard and winery. It was Michael Wright who immaculately built this property into the beacon it has become today. While Voyager's founder and visionary sadly passed away in 2012, he left a powerful legacy of an absolute commitment to quality that today pervades every corner of Voyager. The Estate remains family owned, with Michael’s daughter, Alex Burt (nee Wright), matching her father's fanatical attention to detail with an environmental conscience that has opened another important chapter in the history of this Estate." - Bibendum
“... Michael (Wright) has never done things by halves, and has had the financial resources to turn Voyager Estate into one of the best vineyards and wineries in the region..” - James Halliday
"150 years of farming underpin my family's dedication to Voyager Estate. Our viticulture and winemaking bring everything I love about agriculture together in one enterprise. I settled on our special site in Stevens Valley because it had the ideal characteristics to create wines that are at home amongst the world's best. Its geology is the oldest in Australia and the gravel soils, microclimate, aspect and consistent maritime influence make up the foundations of the distinctive Voyager Estate style." - Michael Wright, Founder, 1937 - 2012
