Gold | Margaret River Wine Show 2016
New release 2013 Xanadu Exmoor Shiraz
Deep red with garnet hues
Blackberries and raspberries with fragrant floral notes spiced with hints of liquorice, tar and subtle toasty oak influences.
A full-bodied, yet controlled, Shiraz displays ample depth with plenty of inky forest fruits; blackberries, redcurrants and spice. The ripe fruit and savoury elements combine together with supple tannins and a fine acid backbone providing structure to this well balanced wine, finishing with a lovely persistence of fruit. Perfectly approachable in its youth, this wine will comfortably cellar for several years.
The fruit was destemmed and then crushed with open rollers to introduce whole berries into the ferment. The core components were fermented in both static and rotary fermenters at 26oC for 6 days (1 component was co-fermented with a small portion of Viognier to add spice and a floral lift to the wine). The various batches underwent MLF and 14 months maturation in a selection of fine French oak barriques (25% new oak in total) prior to bottling.

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 2015.
