Xanadu DJL Chardonnay 2016


I've got great memories of Xanadu. My wife and I had lunch at their restaurant while on our honeymoon in Margaret River well over a decade now. We feasted on marron and were treated to a fabulous tasting and winery tour. A brilliant place and someday I'd love to go back.

I haven't seen many Xanadu wines since actually and this is my first review of one on this site. Funnily enough, this is a wine I shared over a meal with my wife, on the opposite side of the country this time. A great wine to jog the memory.



Delicious. Charming. Lots of soft feels here.

Juicy yellow fleshed nectarines are flanked by a smidge of melted butter, lemon balm with lemon juice tang showing a clean pair of heals at the death. 100% barrel fermented with 25% new French oak, nougat parades carefree through the mid-palate with a creamy complexity before a lick of spice to finish sits long and proud.

Did I say delicious? Super value.

Drink now to six years.
