Voyager-Chenin-Blanc

Voyager Estate Chenin Blanc 2017

Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    13%
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 2017 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.

Voyager Estate is located in the premium wine producing region of Margaret River, Western Australia. Latest statistics show that, although only producing 4% of Australia's wine by volume, Margaret River wines account for 23% of the country's premium wine production. Voyager Estate is proud to be among the select wineries that contribute to this production.

Voyager's oldest vines date back to 1978, just over 10 years after vines were first planted in the area. When current owner, Michael Wright, took over the property in 1991, he set out to expand it and develop a visitor destination that would be a showcase for the region. He also set out to ensure that, above all else, the quality of wine being made at Voyager Estate would always be the best that nature, expertise and pure hard work could provide.

Nose: Fresh aromas of pome and tropical fruits with a subtle hint of spice.

Palate: The wine displays flavours of spicy pome fruits with underlying citrus and some tropical fruit nuances. The palate has a nicely balanced weight and a creamy textural element derived from some barrel fermentation, finishing with subtle sweetness balanced by fresh natural acidity.

Food: Excellent with mildly-spiced Asian dishes or fresh seafood dishes, the Chenin Blanc is equally good pairing for many vegetarian dishes.

Cellaring: The wine is made in an early drinking, soft, fruit-driven style with great intensity of flavours, a subtle textural complexity from a small barrel fermented component and balanced by fresh acidity with a hint of sweetness.
