95 Points - James Halliday
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.
As is typical of Voyager Chenin Blanc, the 2019 vintage is produced in an early drinking, soft tropical fruit style with great intensity of fruit flavours, balanced by fresh acidity and a hint of sweetness. 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. Sow's ears and silk purses. Shows what can be achieved with a variety usually reserved for bank managers' Christmas parties. Screwcap. 14% alc. To 2029. $20" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021.
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.
