There are few more reliable Margaret River SBS/SSBs than the Voyager, and even in the very early (most varieties were picked 2-3 weeks earlier than usual) 2012 vintage Voyager have managed to balance fruit ripeness and acidity.
Cut grass, limes, lemongrass. It's a wine driven by acidity and quite early picked snappy fruit, though with the limes and melon drive of Semillon through the middle. Fresh and grapefruity, this is perhaps a little tighter and leaner (early picked no doubt) than in some other vintages but still refreshes. Hot day satiation with texture to go. Easy recommendation.

Would I buy it? Yes. Prawns, BBQ, hot day. Yes.
