Voyager Estate Chardonnay Margaret River 2008

Member Review by madpoet:

As a forewarning, I am a lover of Aussie Chards. The Margaret River has become the home of some of the world's best moderate priced chards. This one is in the heart of that category. It is big, with stone fruit and melon, the necessary hint of grapefruit and cashew like oak, with the oak perfectly balanced. Halliday's is his usual generous self with 96 points but Oliver and Walsh are no pushovers and they much agree. It's going to live for more than a few years, but mine will never make it. It is so good now, why wait.

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. Read less

This is a spectacularly complex chard in the best of the Margaret River. I'd be the first to admit that Aussie Chards are a bit different than their French and California cousins but this one rates well with the US raters and is prized in its homeland. Hard to come by here, and yet on sale for $9.99 a bottle. Ripe and juicy on the nose, there is melon, honeydew, butterscotch and a hint of vanilla. On the palate it is wave of apple, pear, peach and vanilla oak with a hint of spice. The finish is long, joyous and persistent.
