The palate is medium bodied displaying white fleshed stone fruits and zesty citrus flavours. The taut mineral backbone is complimented by a lovely creamy/marshmallow texture derived from lees stirring whilst in barrel. Fine and fresh, the bright fruit and crisp acidity combine to focus the wine perfectly to a lingering fruit finish. A modern style of Chardonnay, displaying classic Margaret River hallmarks. The 2015 Exmoor Chardonnay is a wine which, while drinking well in its youth will reward with careful cellaring.
All components (majority being Gin Gin clone Chardonnay) were pressed without crushing, followed by 80% barrel fermentation in French barriques (14% new oak in final blend). Natural fermentation was encouraged on barrel fermented components, in order to introduce complexity and personality into the wine. The remaining 20% of the blend was fermented in tank before being transferred, with lees, into barrel for maturation. All of the individual batches which make up the blend were lees stirred throughout a nine-month oak maturation period, without any malolactic fermentation; gaining texture throughout the year. The final blend was put together in November 2015.

One of Western Australia's most established wineries, producing quality wines through traditional winemaking techniques, Xanadu Wines is unmistakably Margaret River. John and Eithne Lagan arrived at Margaret River in 1968, first planting their vineyard in 1977. They named their vineyard Xanadu after the poem Kubla Khan by the romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge and recently won the James Halliday's Wine of the Year for 2015.
