Xanadu Reserve Chardonnay

£67.56
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 pristine fruit aromas of fresh pears, citrus and white fleshed nectarines with underlying hints of oatmeal, nougat and flint. The palate is medium bodied and focused with a nervy acidity. The wine offers pear puree and white fleshed stone fruits with a pithy grapefruit edge adding structure. 

Tasting note:
A vibrant yet highly complex wine, with all the elements culminating to a crisp lingering fruit finish. The intensity of tightly coiled fruit is complemented with a creamy ‘al dente’ textual mouthfeel derived from lees stirring, and a lovely saline/oyster-shell character.
