James Halliday – The project is to present clone 95, here with a juicy make-up to its predominantly stone fruit mid-palate before switching to a more pithy/minerally mode on the finish, with grapefruit in the ascendancy.
About This Wine
The Clone 95 Chardonnay demonstrates the restrained and elegant effect found in Voyager's Estate Chardonnay, from the fruit grown in our Broadvale Block 6 vineyard. Planted in 2004 with this particular clone, from the beginning the block has expressed a distinctive style and personality. The 2012 vintage has resulted in a wine that is a true expression of the block, fresh, vibrant and finessed.
Margaret River Wine
In the southwest of Western Australia, the Margaret River wine region is unique in that it is the most maritime-influenced region in all of Australia. The cool Indian ocean breezes come in through the summer to keep the temperatures around the vines steady resulting in an unusually even accumulation of warmth in the growing season. It is also quite dry as interestingly less than 20% of the annual rainfall occurs as the grapes are growing. The region’s climatic factors have been compared to what Bordeaux would be like in a dry season. While the region’s total production is relatively small (3% of Australia’s total wine production), it is responsible for 20% of our premium wine market.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz as well as Bordeaux blends are all very popular red wine options in the region.
For whites, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age worthy Chardonnays are the specialties.
