Xanadu Exmoor Chardonnay, Margaret River, Australia 2019

Regular price £14.49

Refined Chardonnay from a top producer, showing the class of Margaret River.

Situated in 110ha of prime Margaret River vineyards, Xanadu is also rated 5 stars by James Halliday and produces high-scoring Cabernet, Chardonnay and Semillon/Sauvignon blends. The grapes are harvested and then pressed without crushing, followed by 100% barrel fermentation in predominantly older French oak. All of the individual batches which make up the blend are lees stirred throughout a nine-month period.

Tasting Note: This bright and refreshing wine offers aromas and flavours of pear, grapefruit and nectarine with underlying hints of toast. It is medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and a crisp, lingering finish.
