Voyager’s heritage block, planted in 1978, has been run organically for many years and was a driving component towards the entire property becoming organic. Its core cabernet blocks are certified organic this year, with the remaining blocks following from 2021. “The life and vitality we see in the organic soils provides an incredible substance to which great fruit can grow. Compared to conventional farming methods, we are now seeing more depth and density of fruit in the flavour profiles of the wine,” reveals Travis.
Margaret River is undoubtedly producing some of the best cabernet in the world, yet its wines represent unprecedented value, especially in comparison with the rest of the world.
“Margaret River’s winemaking is in a fantastic place at present, with an exciting number of mature vineyards producing some beautiful fruit and thoughtful winemakers framing these great sites elegantly,” Julian adds.
With another exceptional vintage experienced this year, this region is poised for further dominance on the international platform.
