Its Origins

Voyager Estate is a premium producer in Margaret River, Western Australia. The late mining magnate Michael Wright pursued several avenues of business and agriculture before setting his sights on owning a vineyard and winery. It was thus an easy decision when he was able to buy what was then called Freycinet Estate from founder and leading viticulturist Peter Gherardi in 1991. Peter had established the vineyard in '78, and it was significantly expanded by Michael over the ensuing years. Apart from the Cape Dutch- style tasting room and vast rose garden, the signpost for the estate is the massive Australian flag pole - after Parliament House in Canberra, the largest flag pole in Australia. Michael's daughter, Alexandra Burt, has been at the helm of Voyager Estate for many years, supported by general manager Chris Furtado and a long-serving and committed staff.

What The Critics Say

95/100 Halliday's Wine Companion, Campbell Mattinson (2015 vintage)

"Ruggedly beautiful. This is brilliant with bold fruit but it's muscular with tannin too; it's like a bodybuilder in sheer lycra. Smooth cassis, silken milk chocolate, a smattering of bay leaves and violets. It has good concentration but it's not a big wine; it doesn't need to be. What it does have is form, presence and persistence."
