Xanadu Estate Chardonnay

£23.15
Grape variety: 100% 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 elegant, yet powerful Chardonnay offers both detailed purity and complexity. Fresh pear puree white fleshed stone fruits, frangipani and zesty grapefruit with underlying secondary characters of nougat, wafers and mealy notes in the background. The palate is medium bodied and tightly coiled, displaying white peach, pear drop and pithy grapefruit phenolics. The fine boned structure is augmented by a lovely creamy mouthfeel derived from lees stirring. Refined yet complex, the intense fruit and core of acidity combine to focus the wine perfectly to a lingering finish. youth will certainly reward with careful cellaring.
