Voyager Estate Project 95 Chardonnay

Capturing restraint and deep wells of mineral texture in the midst of Margaret River intensity takes consummate skill, and Voyager has nailed it in this wine like never before. The more elegant Clone 95 is the ingredient, producing delightfully honed and focused white peach, grapefruit pulp and lemon zest flavours, with a restraint and delicate white floral perfume not often seen in Margaret River. Beautifully focused minerality melds with subtle gunflint complexity to produce an immensely textural palate, fine-grained and immaculate. It lingers with outstanding persistence, chiselled and introverted yet deeply, intensely mineral. $55 at Canterbury Wines.
