WINE OF THE WEEK
Voyager Estate Chenin Blanc 2014
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,
