Voyager Estate Margaret River Shiraz

There is an elegantly medium-bodied restraint that sets Voyager Estate apart from most renditions of 2010 Margaret River shiraz. A refreshing 13.5% alcohol provides space for its beautifully textured, graphite-fine, mineral tannins to speak amidst vibrant acid definition. To achieve such depth of fruit within this mould is the true victory of this wine, with impressive purity of satsuma plums, concentrated black cherries, succulent blackberries, lifted violets, ground pepper and a hint of charcuterie. A wine of elegant confidence, taut structure, long-lingering persistence and refined definition. $30 at MyCellars, Aussie Wines and Wine List Australia.
