Xanadu DJL Chardonnay 2017 Margaret River, Australia
The bouquet of this elegant, yet powerful Chardonnay offers poached pears and grapefruit with underlying hints of nougat and oyster shell. The palate is medium bodied displaying white fleshed stone fruits and zesty citrus flavours. Taut and minerally, complimented by a lovely texture derived from lees stirring whilst in barrel, the bright fruit and crisp acidity combine to focus the wine perfectly to a lingering fruit finish.

XANADU WINES – Margaret River
Established in 1977, Xanadu was one of the pioneering vineyards in Margaret River. In 2005 the Rathbone Family took over Xanadu, revolutionising the vineyard and the cellar to produce wines that show true regional personality. Having built a strong reputation for Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, Xanadu is once again a leading light as one of Margaret River’s benchmark wineries.
