What a rare treat - aged Chardonnay that is now hitting its tenth birthday and in excellent form. 

Instead of the citrus and grapefruit of youth this has more toast, more complexity and it makes for quite a wine. You want white wine with real depth of flavour? Look no further.

Expert Reviews

91 Points - Gary Walsh - The Wine FrontFlavour, elegance, variety of flavour and a clean long finish. Great work for $18. Mix of wood-spice and nectarine, grapefruit and (subtle) sweet pear. Lingers beautifully. Neither lean nor big; it’s modest in a generous kind of way. Perhaps a touch alcohol warm but chilled it drinks handsomely.
90 Points - James Halliday - Halliday's Wine CompanionA bright and fresh nectarine and spiced fruit bouquet, with a touch of lanolin also on display; the light to medium-weighted palate is fleshy and fresh, open knit and accessible; built for early consumption.

How's it taste?

Well balanced Chardonnay aged for you at its peak. Savouriness from its decade of slumber has developed while retaining stone-fruit flavours. Drink now, it's slept enough

How was it made?

The majority of the Gingin clone Chardonnay was whole bunch pressed followed by 100%
barrel fermentation in select French oak (approx. 25% new oak). Natural fermentation was
encouraged on approx. 60% of the blend, in order to introduce more complexity and
personality into the wine. All of the individual batches which make up the blend were lees
stirred throughout a nine-month oak maturation period, without any malolactic fermentation.

Who made it?

Xanadu Wines was established by Dr John Lagan in 1977. Located in Margaret River, Western Australia, where the Mediterranean climate not only offers a perfect grape growing environment, but its idyllic scenery is a testament to its poetic namesake, an exotic setting for making wines that embody all that is Margaret River. A highly respected winery tucked away in Australia’s south-western corner, Xanadu is proud of its ongoing commitment to crafting exciting wines of outstanding quality.
