Winemaker Notes

Fresh, lifted citrus and tropical fruit aromas with some grassy notes and hints of dried herbs. Crunchy, fresh flavors of tropical fruits, lemon and lime combine with subtle hints of coconut derived from a small component of barrel fermentation. Lees contact offers additional complexity and texture to the palate, finishing with a clean, crisp, natural acidity.

The cool 2017 vintage has produced a classic expression 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 whilst young and fresh.

Great as an aperitif. Enjoy with fresh goat's cheese, light crustacean or fish entrees.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling
A pretty sauvignon blanc showing gooseberries, blackberry leaves, freshly cut herbs, lime and lemons. Light to medium body, acidity that remains fresh but balanced, lovely green fruit and a tangy finish.

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

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.

Bordeaux White Blends

View all products

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux white blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. This blend was popularized in the Bordeaux region of France (where it also comprises outstanding sweet wines like Sauternes and Barsac), but is often mimicked throughout the New World, particularly in California, Washington and Australia.

In the Glass

Sémillon provides the background to this blend, with a relatively full body and an oily texture. Sauvignon Blanc adds acidity and lots of bright fruit flavor, particularly white grapefruit, lime and freshly cut grass. Used in smaller proportions, Muscadelle can contribute fresh floral notes, while Sauvignon Gris is less aromatic but offers ripe, juicy fruit on the palate. These wines run the gamut from unoaked, refreshing, and easy to drink to serious, complex and barrel-aged. The latter style, usually with a higher percentage of Sémillon, can develop aromas of ginger, chamomile and dried orange peel. The dessert wines produced by these blends, often with the help of "noble rot" called botrytis, can have lush stone fruit and honey characteristics.

Perfect Pairings

Crisp, dry Bordeaux white blends are the perfect accompaniment for raw or lightly cooked seafood, especially shellfish. A more structured, Sémillon-based bottling can stand up to richer fish, chicken, or pork dishes in white sauces. These blends also work well with a variety of vegetables and fresh herbs, like asparagus, peas, basil and tarragon. Sweet dessert wines are traditionally enjoyed with strong blue cheeses, foie gras or fruit-based desserts.

Sommelier Secret

Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but astute sommeliers know that they can be served at any time—before, during or after the meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage, poached lobster in beurre blanc sauce or even fried chicken.
