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 2017 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.

Reviews of the 2016 vintage included below;

"Fresh and clean peach stonefruit with light watercracker, cashew, nougat, lemon and light fennel. Forward on the fruit (lime, grapefruit and peach) but that’s the style and it zings with Marg’s surf side brine. Light French oak plays the supporting role. Pour it by the bucket-full. RRP: $28 Alc: 13.5% Rating: 17/20" - Regan Drew, vinonotebook.com.

"The fruit for Voyager Estate's excellent entry point Chardonnay was fermented in both stainless steel and French oak barrels before being matured in old and new barrels for seven months. The result is a fruit driven wine, balanced and delicious wine with ripe stone fruits and cashew. The medium-bodied palate is textured and long. 92 Points. Drink By: 2020 Price: $28.00 Date Tasted: 03 Jan 2017 Alcohol: 13.5%" - Philip Rich, winecompanion.com.au.

"A lighter, early drinking young chardonnay displaying some subtle deceptive complexities. Nutty stone fruit and grapefruit citrus characters. The palate has an appealing vanillin influence with a gentle nougat richness. A little dab of oak completes a well-made wine for the next few years. 91/100 CELLAR 4 Years" - Ray Jordan, The Western Australian Wine Guide 2018.

The wine was crafted with Estate grown grapes to create a fruit-driven, early drinking style of Chardonnay, which reflects the purity of fruit from our pristine coastal vineyards. The restrained use of French oak and wild yeast fermentation adds subtle complexity and texture to the palate, which finishes with a clean mineral edge.- Voyager Estate Wines
