Lovers of highly quality Chardonnay will be aware of the position Voyager Estate has among the top echelon of Australian Chardonnay. The Voyager Estate Girt By Sea Chardonnay is a relatively new addition to the Voyager line-up, joining its hugely popular Cabernet Merlot counterpart. The 2018 Voyager Girt By Sea Chardonnay is a must try for lovers of Margaret River Chardonnay, sure to impress with its approachable style, subtle complexity and extraordinary value for money.
Sourced entirely from Estate-grown vineyards, the idea here is to craft a more fruit-driven, early drinking companion to the Voyager Estate Chardonnay. It's fresh and full of vitality, with subtle complexity and texture and a punchy core of grapefruit and some riper tropical notes. Subtle hints of French oak add a classy layer of complexity to the wine, which finishes with a crisp, citrus fruit edge.
"93 Points. The words ‘girt by sea' come from the Australian national anthem, which creates very different reactions. The wine is a blend of six blocks, monthly wild fermentation doing the heavy lifting. It is a wine to please far many more tasters than those who are disappointed by it. Screwcap. 13.5% alc. Drink by 2023. $28" - 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.
