Xanadu Next of Kin Chardonnay 2014
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.
Wild-fermented and apparently unoaked; an exercise in laser precision and attention to detail in the vineyard and winery alike. Pink grapefruit and nectarine fruit sits in the box seat, vibrant acidity an integral part of the wine's profile. Xanadu does it again. Rating: 93 Points; Drink by: 2020; Price: $18; Date Tasted: Sept 2015; Alcohol: 13%; Top 100 Wines of 2015 - James Halliday; Weekend Australian
