Voyager Estate `Broadvale Block 6` Chardonnay 2014 (2x750ml) Margaret River

Description:

The fruit for this wine was sourced exclusively from the Broadvale Block 6 vineyard. Planted in 2004 to Clone 95 Chardonnay with a plant density of 2300 vines per hectare, this specially selected parcel of soil is on the crown of a gentle hill, with a slight aspect to the east. The block is only 1.1 hectare in size with exceptionally uniform soil depth and structure. The block is extremely gravelly with a very high content of granite and possesses an underlying stony-clay base at a

depth of around one metre. This small patch of soil produces very balanced vines, which even from a young age have proven extremely adept at expressing a distinctive quality and personality.

Expert Reviews

94 Points. Campbell mattinson - Wine Front.31 October 2017

This is made with Dijon clone 95 and tasting it alongside the Gin Gin-based Block 5 release is a fascinating exercise. It saw 41% new oak though again, all the remaining oak was near-new anyway.

It’s an electrical wine, fine and tangy, taut and long, with flint and spice notes scratched into the core of grapefruit and citrus. The Block 5 is the explosion; this Block 6 is the spark. It does not lack power, nor indeed length, and it has class written all over it.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Colour: Pale straw green

Nose: Powerful white flower and lemon pith aromas.

Palate: Minerality and texture at the core of the wine, the superb palate displays vibrant citrus elements that

lead to a fine, delicate, creamy oak texture held together with balanced natural acidity on the finish.

Style: The perfect ripening period for Chardonnay has produced a wine displaying fineness and elegance,

with the hallmark flavours of lemon pith and grapefruit, combined with an attractive chalky textural

element. Early hand-harvesting, the use of wild yeast, French oak, grape solids and full malolactic

fermentation combined with regular batonnage, have all contributed texture, complexity and balance

to the wine.

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.
