VOYAGER ESTATE MJW Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
"The fruit is sourced from 2 incredible vineyards; the 1978 planted Estate Old Block and the younger but still brilliant North vineyard (Block 12, planted 1995). Small components of petit verdot and merlot in the blend. Matured for 20 months in French oak (50% new). Elegant, supple, finely textured and very long. This is seriously classy cabernet from a vintage that produced wines of singular density, muscularity and tannins."

2021 MAS Komagatake Single Malt 'Wine Cask Finish' Whisky
"Made in Japan, aged in Bourbon casks for 3 years and 8 months then finished in Voyager Estate MJW Cabernet Sauvignon 2016's French-oak barrels for 15 months
This special whisky shows the harmony between the world of whisky and wine. It combines wonderfully to add depth and complexity of flavour. Red wine accents are evidenced with fruit notes on the aroma with a hint of citrus. The palate has a velvety smooth texture with sweet fruitness, vanilla and warm spices. The finish is long, elegant and rounded with a delicate balance of cask toast and peat character."
