Voyager Estate Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2014

Voyager Estate Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2014

There’s now a photo of founder Michael Wright on the back of this Voyager Estate bottle, along with a nice vista of the estate. Good work.

This smells like classic WA SBS too. A green straw colour, the nose is full of grassy lemon Sauv aromatics that jump out of the glass. The palate starts off with grassy lemon juiciness too, slightly tart but very fresh, the sharp edged tempered with a hint of fatter ripeness too, clearly showing both ripe and underripe fruit.
Crisp, varietal and long, it’s a classic WA SBS in its lines, if just too tart and jagged to be really enjoyable – I never quite got into its angular finish.
