2021 Voyager Estate
‘MJW’ Chardonnay

Certified Organic – Gift Boxed

“A selection of the best certified blocks made from a mix of gingin and Dijon 95 clones. Powdered icing sugar, shaved ice and lemonade fruit segments. Lemon verbena, candlenut and crème fraîche. Alluring in its way of enticing you into the glass further. The fruit is compact and coiled while acidity maintains tension throughout the palate. There is a crunch of peach skin in the middle palate and the wine continues to evolve with each sip. 9 months in French oak of which 32% was new seems to be a seamless fit for this chiselled and artfully poised wine. Drinking like a dream, it will cellar but I doubt you’ll have the resilience. Serve alongside the best triple cream brie you can get your hand on, at room temperature so it’s oozy!”

Shanteh Wale – Wine Pilot

 

“Often a powerhouse of a wine, but this vintage, it’s not too big, not too light, just right. The palate is refined and feels effortless as the citrus flavours mingle with grilled-almond lees, clotted cream and some oak spice offering savoury nuances. There’s certainly texture, but the fine line of acidity just reins in everything as the finish lingers. It feels cool and calm.”

Jane Faulkner – Halliday Wine Companion

 

“Polished, elegant, powerful, salty, mineral and dense.   Latent power. Very good! It will come together in time and no doubr score higher given the trajectory of these wines…”
