Voyager Estate Project Gin Gin 2012

Some notes from the Voyager Estate Masterclass held in Brisbane recently:

Named after the Gin Gin clone and coming from 3.6 hectares of vines.
Picked early, there's a floral lift to the wine. 40% new oak used.
Full solids used in the ferment and no malo.
There's a textural component to the wine and this a result of the small berry to juice ratio. Lots of grapefruit and citrusy flavours here.
Textural features linger softly and the fruit core has a purity about it.
A delicious wine. I preferred this to the Project 95.

Cellar for up to ten but good to go now.

Very good+
