The growing conditions around Xanadu's vineyards, in the form of beautifully still Indian summers, cool nights and clear warm days, are second to none for the production of world class Cabernet Sauvignon. The ideal weather patterns at vintage afford vignerons the luxury to harvest each block as grapes achieve full physiological ripeness. Bunches are crushed and destemmed, inoculated to a variety of select yeasts and vinified in a combination of static and sweeper arm fermenters at 26°C over the course of a week. Components complete malolactic before being treated to fourteen months maturation in a selection of new and seasoned, predominantly French oak barriques.
Deep red with ruby hues. Vibrant aromas of ripe blackcurrants, berry fruits and dark plum entwined with hints of spicy, toasty oak. The generous palate is packed full of juicy fruits of the forest, cassis and chocolate characters. Full bodied, the attractive fleshy fruits fit into a structure supported by supple tannins, a solid acid backbone and a persistent berry fruit finish. The classic Margaret River Cabernet style, drinking very well in its youth.
