95 Points - James Halliday
Lovers of top class Aussie Chardonnay will be aware of the position Voyager Estate has among the top echelon of Australian Chardonnay. The 2018 Voyager Estate Chardonnay is another top-line example displaying complexity, texture and restraint.
This offers a wonderful purity of fruit and is perfectly countered by a savoury and mineral edge. This is a classic Margaret River Chardonnay that while superbly now, will reward in the years to come.
"95 Points. Four clones, four estate blocks, four tonnelleries and innumerable vinification approaches. This lends substance to the number of newly created labels; here the acidity sends a farewell lift to the finish and aftertaste. Length, life and grace. $50. 13.5% alc. Drink by: 2027. Screwcap." - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
It was Michael Wright who immaculately built this property into the beacon it has become today. While Voyager's founder and visionary sadly passed away in 2012, he left a powerful legacy of an absolute commitment to quality that today pervades every corner of Voyager. The Estate remains family owned, with Michael’s daughter, Alex Burt (nee Wright), matching her father's fanatical attention to detail with an environmental conscience that has opened another important chapter in the history of this Estate.
Voyager Estate is well-known for crafting some of Australia's finest Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, while their Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Shiraz and Chenin Blanc are regularly lauded as benchmark examples for the Margaret River region. Some terrific value is also to be found under the 'Girt By Sea' range, with a Cabernet Merlot and Chardonnay regularly bottled under this entry-level label by Voyager Estate.
