Voyager Estate Chardonnay 2021
A near perfect growing season, aside from a small storm in late October which brought some wind and hail. Spring was warm and dry, followed by a very hot December. Milder conditions through January ripened the grapes nicely, and saw the team commencing harvest in early February. The chardonnay was picked first, with the fruit displaying pristine freshness, fruit concentration and bright varietal expression.
