Voyager Estate Chenin Blanc 2012

I sat down with a good friend The Wine Punter and lined up ten wines in a blind tasting. This wine was Wine #8 and it shone like a beacon, head and shoulders above the rest.

Approachability deluxe, we were both surprised it was a Chenin Blanc upon reveal, yet at the same time very pleased with the result.

My first whiff was filled with pineapple lollies, tropical fruits, underlying cashews and apricot nectar.

A very polished palate with stone fruit and tropical flavours and an unmistakable creaminess. Length was excellent and the wine beautifully balanced and structured- approachable deluxe!

Asian foods is written all over this. Drink now and enjoy.

Available at a wide range of retailers.

  1. Thanks to my neighbour Steve.. brought over a 2009 d'Arenberg Derelict Vineyard Granache, it is outstanding!
    Also a taste of Pothana from Belford, a 2011 Shiraz, what can I say. Would love to put a few away for a couple of years, the David Hook old vines Shiraz has everything you could wish for in a Shiraz, smoky and full of earth.
    In return I wrote Steve's name on a Zandvliet Shiraz 2003 in my cellar, he will collect it when he wants to drink it. If you are unfamiliar with Zandvliet it is a South African icon Shiraz, hard to beat! Check it out on the web!
