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. 

Interesting chardonnay. Made in a racy, mouthwatering style yet it still has a power to it. It’s citrus-driven in large part though grapefruit, pear and apple characters also play roles. As indeed does creamy oak, though it adds as much texture as flavour. Can a wine be both lean and flavoursome? This wine provokes the question. It will be a much better drink in a year or two. Tasted: Aug 19; Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2025; Rated: 91+ Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front

Predominantly Gingin clone from Wallcliffe, Wilyabrup, Treeton and Karridale, whole-bunch pressed to barrel (20% new) for wild fermentation, all components stirred through a 9-month maturation. The complexity and character of the wine has garnered countless gold medals over the years, and you would expect this vintage to add to the record. Drink by: 2028; Date Tasted: Feb 2019; Price: $24.00; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion
