“While variable weather, low yields and high bird pressure provided challenges in 2015, our sensitive winemaking produced a complex, textural wine with great intensity and balance. Great drinking now, with the ability to cellar a further few years.”

Vineyard Notes
A challenging growing season with variable weather - an unseasonably warm, early spring, followed by a cool, windy period during flowering, which led to 20-30% lower yields across all varieties. This, together with warm, dry weather over summer, had the grapes move rapidly through flavour profiles making choice of harvest date critical to capture peak varietal expression.
Production Notes
2014: From a near perfect growing season, this is a complex and beautifully balanced wine displaying lifted dark berry fruit, earthy tones, dark chocolate and bay leaf. Fine, layered tannins, seamlessly integrated French oak and extraordinary length complete the package which will only improve with age. 2013: Attractive lifted citrus aromas with hints of spice, nougat and pistachio nuts. The textural palate displays fresh and vibrant citrus fruits with an attractive savoury element which contributes length to the palate, finishing with a clean flinty edge. 2012: A tight-structured wine displaying youthful pale lemon colour. Complex aromas of citrus, pear, floral notes and elegant savoury element follow through to a textural palate brimming with vibrant citrus fruits, great natural acidity and a long mineral finish. Will benefit from further cellaring. 2011: The product of a warm ripening season, this wine displays intense notes of citrus rind and sweet nectarine stone fruits countered by a slightly funky note. The palate follows through with classic grapefruit and peach notes together with layers of texture and a long acid finish. Drinks well now, but will continue to age. Drink now till 2024. 2010: From a near perfect growing season, this still incredibly fresh, complex and textural wine shows Voyager Estate's characteristic restraint. The purity of lemon pith and fresh juice notes is perfectly countered by a savoury, wet stone-like mineral edge and a long balanced length. 2009: A classic Margaret River Chardonnay with intense aromas of citrus fruits, grapefruit pith, savoury nutty notes and an elegant, flinty oyster-shell minerality. The textural palate is exceptionally long and intense, driven by a core of acidity that will ensure this wine's longevity. drink now - 2026. 2008: Displaying a soft golden colour, this is a round fruit-driven wine with layers of ripe apple and soft white peach through to a charry, nutty finish. Great drinking now but unlikely to improve with further cellaring. 2007: From one of our warmer vintages, this wine displays surprising brightness. Currently drinking beautifully, with ripe citrus fruits, nutty and butterscotch aromas, citrus and stone fruit flavours on the palate, hints of cashew nuts, almonds and toasty French oak with a wonderful creamy, soft mouth-feel. Drink now - 2025 2006: One of our coolest and most challenging vintages, this wine was produced from fruit with an average bunch weight of only 50 grams! Naturally high acidity has kept this wine bright, with clean citrus notes, noticeable minerality, excellent texture and a long finish. Drink now.
