Established in 1977 by Irishman Dr John Lagan, the Xanadu vineyards now owned by the Rathbone family continue to flourish in a near-perfect viticultural environment that inspired Dr Lagan; rich free draining gravel soils; an abundant water supply and a unique maritime climate. Winemaker Glenn Goodall mirrors the original vision; to produce premium wines that reflect the true character of the region in synergy with the environment and vineyards. 

86% cabernet sauvignon, 10% malbec, 4% petit verdot; from northern Margaret River, 43% estate-grown in Wallcliffe (southern Margaret River) and a small portion of the cabernet (12%) from the Frankland River; destemmed and crushed, static fermenter for 5-7 days, 35% given extended maceration on skins, matured for 14 months in French oak (30% new).

With plenty of swirling in glass this broody wine reveals its character: Ripe blackberries and red currant, chocolate, tar, mint and other herbs mingle with toasty oak notes on the nose. The tannins on the palate are dusty and tightly wound and woven into more tar and savory herbal characters. The oak is fairly prominent now but there's an elegance to this medium-bodied wine that will take it to nice heights in the future. Drink now–2027. Wine Enthusiast (US)

94% Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% petit Verdot, 30% new oak. This is pretty much as you’d hope and expect it to be. Curranty, firm-ish, dry, whispered with bay leaf notes, laced with milk chocolate. It has enough flavour and good length, feels/tastes both varietal and regional at every step, and will drink well both in its youth and well into the medium term. Tasted: Apr 18; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $24; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2019 - 2026+; Rated: 92 Points; Calmpbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
