Xanadu Fusion Western Australian Chardonnay 2022

3.000000000 star rating 4 Reviews
A phenomenal-value taste of Western Australian chardonnay, made up of a large percentage of Margaret River fruit. Usually this wine would be entirely Margaret River fruit but due to the smaller yields in the 2022 vintage, prime grapes from surrounding regions were incorporated. This shows delicious stone and tropical fruit on the nose, an attractive nuttiness and sweet spice. The palate is generous, with breadth and depth way beyond its price bracket. Lemon zest, ginger snap and peach combine, with fine tension through to the finish.

Xanadu

Sitting among and the equal of Margaret River’s finest wineries, Xanadu has existed since 1977 when it was established by Dr John Lagan. Taking advantage of the area’s Mediterranean climate, tempered by maritime influences from the Indian Ocean, he was a pioneer of winemaking in this part of Australia. In 2005 the winery was bought by the Rathbone family of Yering Station and Mount Langhi Ghiran, and they have taken on the 65 hectares of vines with a huge commitment to high-quality winemaking and an emphasis on getting it right in the vineyard. There has been huge investment since the Rathbone’s took over. The name of the estate, incidentally, comes from Dr Lagan’s love of the poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and references Kubla Khan’s capital, and pleasure-dome, Xanadu. 2018 was perhaps the best Margaret River vintage in decades and so we took the opportunity to work with Xanadu to blend a very special wine, exclusively for The Wine Society.
