The Voyager Estate Chenin Blanc vines are some of the original Estate vines planted in Margaret River in 1978. As a result of their age and Voyager Estate's viticultural practices, they consistently produce some of Australia's finest Chenin Blanc grapes.
The 2020 Voyager Estate Chenin Blanc again delivers a vibrant, fresh white wine with great intensity of fruit flavours. Tropical fruit flavours of guava and melon with elements of citrus and red apple create a fruit salad style palate. The wine displays some nice fruit weight and texture with an attractive sweetness balanced with fresh natural acidity.
"95 Points. Certified organic, the chenin on the estate was planted in 1978. Fruit was harvested overnight, pressed immediately and transferred to tank for fermentation. Lees were left in situ and stirred regularly for 6 weeks to achieve texture. White pear, summer apricot, jasmine tea and white spice. The palate has a waxy Vouvray vibe going on, which really builds on itself through the evolution over the palate. Desperately pleasurable, jolly good drinking. $20. 13.5% alc. Screwcap"- Erin Larkin, 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.
