Australia - Western Australia - Margaret River - Voyager Estate

www.voyagerestate.com.au

This winery is a landmark in the Margaret River area. Starting in Victoria on my trip across southern Australia I had people I met in campgrounds, restaurants, and wine stores telling me I had to visit Voyager Estate. The winery itself is a very traditional style Dutch building with gorgeous grounds and rose gardens. Perhaps the best part of the winery though is the restaurant where I had the best beef (a filet mignon) I've had in Australia and without a doubt the best flat-white coffee of the trip. I highly recommend the restaurant for lunch or afternoon tea.

2006 Semillon / Sauvignon Blanc
6-6-6
Pale straw color, tinge of grassy green. Nose has hints of Sauvignon Blanc but very restrained. Big grapefruit flavors with a lemony finish. AU$22

2003 Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot
8-9-7
Very dark, almost opaque. Soft refined nose. Beautiful wine, a perfect pairing with my steak. AU$39.50

2005 Shiraz
5-7-6
Seriously savory. Dark plum colors. AU$29.50
