Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
Voyager are meticulous in everything they do, from varietal and clonal selection to vineyard management and the winemaking process. They can call on harvests of estate grown fruit which are second to none, to be assembled into the definitive style of Margaret River white. Sauvignon Blanc Clone 1 contributes crunchy lifted tropical fruit, Semillon adds healthy citrus, structure and palate weight. A vibrant west coast wine of elegance and engaging complexity, offering exquisite balance and a measure of regional charm.
Voyager Estate's philosophy is simply to make the best wines possible. Traditional vinification techniques as well as the latest technologies are employed. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are harvested throughout the chill of night, each parcel is destemmed and pressed to fermenters for settling and clarification, each batch is racked and innoculated with a mix of X5, QA23 and UOA Maxithiol yeast cultures for two to three weeks of vinification. A part of the Semillon is treated to ferments in new tightly grain French oak barriques, followed by a course of maturation and lees stirring battonage for two months. Upon completion, components are assembled, stabilised and filtered for bottling.
Pale straw green hue. Aromas of tropical fruits with citrus pith, hints of white nectarine and talc. Vibrant with rich fruit flavours of citrus, fleshy stonefruits and tropical notes. A small component of barrel fermentation offers additional complexity and texture to the palate, finishing with a clean, crisp natural acidity. The fruit is fine and pure, the tropical flavours are upfront and bold.
