Voyager Estate Shiraz 2004

91++ points

Margaret River, Western Australia. 14%

Great colour, balancing acidity, deft oak, ripe grapey tannins. Lots to admire in this modern Rhone style, but the deep fruit seems locked away. It certainly doesn’t seem like an 8 year old wine. A cold cellar and screwcap have perhaps arrested development.

I have high hopes. One for the cellar.
