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.

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.
