Voyager Estate Chenin Blanc 2014

Ah Chenin Blanc. When executed well it can be a heavenly nectar. But all too often it can seem over extracted, lots of estery characters. Fortunately here, Voyager Estate have set out to deliberately make this example in an earlier drinking, softer, approachable style. 

Per that guidance, it carries clear hints of tropical fruit, stonefruit, bath salts; the palate fresh, lightly textured, fruity - fruit sweetness balanced against unforced acidity. 

Perfect cleansing style, at 20 yams a great way to start to an afternoon. For me, a welcome addition on a sultry, stormy Brisbane afternoon. 91
