VOYAGER ESTATE CHARDONNAY
Hand-harvested fruit from six separate blocks was cooled overnight, whole-bunch pressed and naturally fermented in French oak. 54% underwent malolactic fermentation to build texture and lower natural acidity. It was aged for eleven months in oak barriques, undergoing regular batonnage prior to blending in January and Bottling in May 2017
An aromatic, complex, textured and elegant style of Chardonnay which showcases the purity of fruit from our sustainably farmed, pristine coastal vineyards. Early hand-harvesting, use of wild yeast fermentation and grape solids, combined with regular batonnage and the finest French oak have all contributed texture, complexity and balance to the wine.
