Without doubt, Voyager Estate's is one of the leading models of an unoaked Australian sauvignon blanc/semillon blend. At their best these wines will develop for up to 5 years, or sometimes even more.

The harmonious aroma of the 2008 shows a synergistic blend of both varieties, as sauvignon blanc influenced gooseberry and lychee notes mesh effortlessly with semillon derived lemon/lime citrus, with traces of mineral and dry straw beginning to emerge. Its palate begins with fullness and roundness, announcing genuine full mouth intensity to its carefully poised and balanced, sweaty, herbal, gooseberry and lime flavours. A great thrust of racy acids carries the wine into a refreshingly brisk finish.

üA very shapely sauvignon blanc/semillon blend with plenty of character and interest for all drinkers. Drink to 2011.
