WINE OF THE WEEK

Voy­ager Es­tate Chenin Blanc 2014

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Wine -

Chenin Blanc has had the Swan Val­ley as its WA home for decades.

The wine was made into dry, fruity, medium-sweet and for­ti­fied styles; the best of which in each in­stance were mar­vel­lous.

The mod­ern ver­sions are strik­ing, with the Swan Val­ley's Lamont's RS39 (39 grams resid­ual sugar) con­sis­tently ab­so­lutely de­li­cious: soft, fra­grant, fresh, lively and bal­anced.

The Voy­ager Es­tate Chenin Blanc is also amongst WA's finest each vintage.

They are in­vari­ably bril­liantly crafted into soft, fra­grant, medium-sweet and seam­less wines with won­der­ful fin­ishes.

This is no ex­cep­tion and is al­most fra­grant, soft, fresh, easy and bal­anced with a touch of sweet­ness.

Juicy, de­li­cious, round, if re­strained, and qual­ity, long fruit. This has fan­tas­tic and se­ri­ous fruit qual­ity for what is re­garded as a non-se­ri­ous style.

Won­der­fully made and de­li­cious,

18 points and RRP $22.
