Voyager Estate Chardonnay 2010


Voyager Estate's 2010 Chardonnay is due for release on/around October 1st 2013. It continues the evolution of the wine in which new oak is being pared back, here seeing 9 months in French oak of which 26% is new.

Opens with toasty,creamy notes of grilled peach; touches of meal with a citrus underlay. The palate is toasty, flinty, powerful - a concentrated expression sitting ahead of hallmark grapefruit/ citrus driven flavour and acidity. 

The palate presence is further augmented with a little mouthfeel and gingery spice. Excellent length and flow. Memorable. 93 

Tasted on: Sunday 15th September, a Root Day
