NOSE The wine exhibits vibrant, characteristic aromas of ripe blackcurrants, berry fruits, and dark plums entwined with hints of spicy, toasty oak. PALATE The generous palate is packed full of jubey forest fruits, cassis and chocolate characters. Full bodied, the attractive fleshy fruits fit into a structure supported by supple tannins, a solid acid backbone and a persistent berry fruit finish. Perfectly approachable in its youth, this wine will comfortably cellar for several years.
ALCOHOL 14% B
BOTTLE SIZE 750 mL
The fruit was crushed and destemmed then fermented in a combination of Static and Rotary fermenters at 26oC for 5 – 7 days. Approximately 20% of the components experienced a pre-fermentation cold soak, with another 30% being left for a period of extended maceration on skins for 28 days. The various batches underwent MLF in tank and barrel before 14 months maturation in a selection French oak barriques (20% new oak).

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.
