2019 Voyager Estate Chardonnay
Always a very classy wine, this vintage is no exception. A blend of clones and partial mlf really set this off to a silky start. The explosive power of the Gingin clone is kept in check by the tension and citrus line of the Dijon clones, the mlf serving as the glue that binds it all together. Acidity freshens the day, and the spicy fruit hooks you in for a 2nd glass. Lovely stuff. Drink by 2036.

Attractive nose of dried pineapple, apricot stone, burnt lemon, jasmine, smoked almond, grilled hazelnut and cedar. Full-bodied, yet refined and focused, with fresh acidity. Excellent concentration and length. Sustainable. Drink now or hold. Screw cap.

Voyager Estate is one of the more lavish yet affable cellar door experiences in Margaret River. Good architecture, fine surrounds. Always like a visit there.
Attractive chardonnay straight out of the dictionary. Scents of lemon, lemon blossom, nougat, vanilla, flint and clove-cinnamon spice. Soft in the palate but bright and flavoursome at once. Crisp stone fruits, green apple, more of the nougat and exotic spice of the bouquet. Rolls quietly, fresh, long over the tongue. Feels classy but also truly gulpable. And refreshing. Gives you good essence of grape flavour. Drink 2021 - 2030.
