Overview

Following the driest July ever recorded in the South West, early spring conditions saw excellent budburst and steady vine growth as frequent rainfall events ensured good soil moisture prior to flowering. Late November brought thunderstorms and extreme winds to the region which resulted in reduced yields across most varieties - particularly Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon which were reduced by around 30%.

All of the fruit was harvested in pristine condition with great vibrancy and excellent flavour profiles ensuring 2013 will produce another excellent crop of wines.

Expert Reviews

Pale quartz, the bouquet has green pea and cut grass aromas, the palate delicately but insistently moving into a spectrum, finishing clean and fresh.

Rated 92 points by James Halliday, Wine Companion

Bright tropical fruit character, touch of sweetness. Come-hither style that invites rapid drinking, an esky, seafood and devil-may-care attitude. Blisteringly fresh, crisp, touch of herbs and greener. Good release of this wine. Rated 91 points by Mike Bennie, WBM Magazine, June 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour: Pale straw green colour.

Nose: Lifted aromatics of fresh tropical fruits with hints of citrus and talc.

Palate: A vibrant blend with fresh and crunchy tropical and citrus fruit flavours. A small component of barrel fermentation and some lees contact offers additional complexity and texture to the palate, finishing with

a clean, crisp, natural acidity.

Style: The 2013 vintage has produced a classic example of this quintessential Margaret River blend showcasing a wonderful purity of fruit coupled with lovely texture and complexity; a perfectly balanced wine with a long, crisp dry finish made to drink fresh and young.

Food Match: The versatile structure of this wine enables it to work well with many foods. It is a perfect match with market-fresh fish from the Voyager Estate Restaurant.

Winery Profile

Voyager Estate is located in the premium wine producing region of Margaret River, Western Australia. Latest statistics show that, although only producing 4% of Australia's wine by volume, Margaret River wines account for 23% of the country's premium wine production. Voyager Estate is proud to be among the select wineries that contribute to this production. Our oldest vines date back to 1978, just over 10 years after vines were first planted in the area. When current owner, Michael Wright, took over the property in 1991, he set out to expand it and develop a visitor destination that would be a showcase for the region. He also set out to ensure that, above all else, the quality of wine being made at Voyager Estate would always be the best that nature, expertise and pure hard work could provide. We leave it for wine lovers and our visitors to judge for themselves.
