Product Description

BRILLIANT SAUVIGNON BLANC SEMILLON BLEND!


"We have found another great white wine from Australia just in time for Spring! TheVoyager Estate is one of the icons of the famous Margaret River wine region. Founder Michael Wright chose a special site in Stevens Valley because of the gravel soils, microclimate, and the consistent maritime influence. A beautiful white with freshness, balanced fruit, a long finish, while providing great value. 94 points from top Aussie reviewer James Halliday and under $16. Enjoy!" – Glen Knight, The Wine House (4/17/17)

94 Points James Halliday:

"68/32%, from 10 estate vineyard blocks, the semillon matured for 2 months in French oak. It has that extra level of depth that is thebirthmark of all Voyager Estate wines, providing fuel for much discussion about thefiner details of the blend percentages and so forth. Will stay the distance." (September 2015)

Colour: Bright, pale straw green colour

Oak Maturation: 20% of the Semillon was fermented in new French oak for two months

James Suckling: 92 points

This has a complex subtlety to it. Full body, dense and beautiful. Sliced apple, pear and lemon. Some grassy undertones. So much going on here. Delicious. Screw cap.
