Description: Tucked away in Australia’s south-west corner just 4km from Margaret River’s magnificent coastline, Xanadu has a long history of crafting outstanding wines that embody all the region has to offer. One of the region’s first vineyards established in 1977 by Dr John Lagan, and now one of the country’s most acclaimed wineries. Xanadu is in an idyllic setting where 65 hectares of vine on the original estate flourish in the rich, free-draining soils of the Margaret River region. In this unique maritime climate, vines enjoy an abundant supply of water sheltered by forests of magnificent marri (gum) trees. The wine is pale-straw in color with aromas of buttercream and oyster shells. The palate is medium-bodied with a creamy texture derived from the stirring of the lees. A bright, dry, and crisp Chardonnay with a hint of brine, apple, and lemongrass. Very nice balanced Chardonnay with less oak and butter on the palate.
Food pairings: Lobster, scallops, fish, chicken, lemon sauce dishes, pumpkin, polenta, shirmp and grits, garlic sauces dishes, etc.
