Winemaker Notes

On the nose, this Chardonnay offers complex aromas of citrus fruit and pear with delicate floral nuances. It is a wine of great depth and purity. The textural mid-palate shows citrus fruits -- leading to a fine, balanced, mineral and savory finish.

Enjoy with full bodied fish or white meat main courses. Great with salmon, trout or quail.

JS 94
James Suckling
This is a very solid white with cooked apple, stone and mineral undertones. Very solid palate. Lots of fruit and intensity. Flavorful finish. Wonderful texture to this. Drink now or hold. Screw cap.
JH 94
Australian Wine Companion
From seven blocks with clones 95, 96, 76 and Gingin, hand-picked over 2 weeks between 11 degrees and 12.5 degrees baume, whole bunch pressed, 85% wild ferment, 11 months in French barriques (40% new). Has the richest array of fruit flavours of the '14 Voyager Chardonnays, even if its structure is less complex.

Voyager Estate, Margaret River, Australia
Image of winery
From one of the most idyllic wine region you could find, Voyager Estate sits in the dress circle of Margaret River producers and winemaker Steve James is fashioning super fine wines.

With a background in horticulture and a transition into winemaking through viticulture and vineyard management, Steve knows only too well that good wine is made in the vineyard. Having been with Voyager since 1998, Steve has a great understanding of the Voyager Estate vineyards, and this has gone a long way into making Voyager Estate one of the most awarded, and collected, wine labels on the Australian circuit.

Margaret River provides a unique, powerful but super fine and elegant expressions of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon; and whilst stylistically different, they definitely stack up to the champions of California and Europe.

Margaret River

View all wine

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-living red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. Complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are another regional specialty. Also common here are refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as earthy, aromatic Bordeaux red blends.

Chardonnay

View all wine

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon. California is Chardonnay’s second most important home, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia and South America are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay flavors tend towards grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, celery leaf and wet flint, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut and spice, while malolactic fermentation imparts a soft and creamy texture.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. In Burgundy, the subregion of Chablis, while typically employing the use of older oak barrels, produces a similar bright and acid-driven style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy its lighter style.
