The sensational vintages of St John's Road were generations in the making, the fruit of grand old vineyards and the progeny of families which have tilled Barossa soil since early settlement. The landed gentry along St John's Road represent a heritage of the most distinguished names in Australian viticulture, Lehmann and Lienert, Zander, Kalleske and Schutz. With each vintage, they earmark small parcels of the most exceptional Barossa fruit, to be treated to a course of traditional open ferments and term of age in the finest French oak. Bearing such pious Lutheran monikers as Prayer Garden and Resurrection Vineyard, these sacred sites are planted to some of the oldest clones in the world.

William James Maxwell was an architectural sculptor who migrated from Scotland to Australia in 1875. He built a mock castle and established a family vineyard just outside Adelaide, which he named Woodlands Park. His son planted vines in nearby McLaren Vale and his grandson served a term as winemaker for Hardy Wines at the historic Tintara wineworks. William Maxwell's progeny remain in McLaren Vale, producing the southern hemisphere's most successful brands of Honey Mead, as well as vintages of the most extraordinary value in McLaren Vale Shiraz. But what does Maxwell taste like? Gentleman James Halliday describes Maxwell as robust, picking the eyes out of McLaren Vale shiraz; licorice, dark chocolate, savoury firm, ripe tannins, blackberry, positive oak the..

Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name. Tahbilk proudly hosts the largest, single holding of Marsanne on the planet. Tahbilk's original rows of Shiraz are.. Phyloxera, ancient cellars & seriously old vines»

Xanadu Chardonnay CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Xanadu's salubrious vineyards are at the heart of Margaret River's most prestigious viticultural precinct. Warm growing seasons with cooling sea breezes create the perfect maritime growing climes. It is here that Chardonnay takes on an added dimension that's unique to Margaret River. More concentrated and more complex, more viscous and more tangy, without being weighty or cloying. The voluptuous fruit lends itself to wild yeast ferments and luxurious lees regimens, Xanadu's award winning team are masterful at both.

What good is a vintage of the finest fruit if it's harvested on the wrong day? The enduring philosophy at Xanadu is that timing is everything, picking at just the right time and guiding the fruit through to the bottle without too much intervention. Sandy loam soils over coarser ancient gravels encourage vines to yield the most intense fruit. Natural ferments keep the focus on preserving the integrity of Margaret River excellence with precision and depth. The choicest parcels of Gin Gin clone Chardonnay are whole bunch pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for a wild, indigenous yeast vinification, followed by nine months sedimentery lees battonage for textural richness and complexity. Alcohol 13.0%
Pale straw with green hues. Bright citrus and white fleshed stone fruit notes over underlying hints of smoky oak, roasted hazelnuts and white flowers. A full bodied palate offering white nectarines, figs and zesty lemony flavours. Lovely complexity with a nutty, mealy texture derived from lees stirring, the taught mineral acidity combines with the bright fruit to focus the wine perfectly to a dry, persistent finish.
