Xanadu DJL Chardonnay

Situated only four kilometres from the town centre of Margaret River and an equal distance from the magnificent coastline, Xanadu is a true pioneer of the region with a long history of producing wines with distinct character that embody all that is the Margaret River. Xanadu was established by Dr John Lagan, an Irishman, who arrived in Margaret River in 1968 and was inspired by the pioneering spirit of the region. At the time, the potential of Margaret River as one of the world’s finest wine-producing regions was only just being considered. So less than a decade on, Dr Lagan with his wife Eithne established one of the region’s earlier vineyards, planting his first vines in 1977.

The bouquet of this fresh, fruit driven Chardonnay displays nashi pears and grapefruit characters with underlying hints of oyster shell and oatmeal. Medium bodied and tightly coiled displayed white fleshed stone fruits and zesty citrus flavours. Minerally/quartz-like characters are complimented by a lovey creamy texture derived from lees stirring whilst in barrel. The vibrant fruit and crisp acidity combine to focus the wine perfectly to a lingering fruit finish.
