Situated only four kilometres from the town centre of Margaret River and an equal distance from the magnificent coastline, Xanadu is a true pioneer of the region with a long history of producing wines with distinct character that embody all that is the Margaret River. Xanadu was established by Dr John Lagan, an Irishman, who arrived in Margaret River in 1968 and was inspired by the pioneering spirit of the region. At the time, the potential of Margaret River as one of the world’s finest wine-producing regions was only just being considered. So less than a decade on, Dr Lagan with his wife Eithne established one of the region’s earlier vineyards, planting his first vines in 1977.
A medium to full-bodied Cabernet with plenty of depth offering blackberries, dark chocolate and cassis. The pristine fruit and fine tannins combine to produce a very complete, distinctly Margaret River Cabernet with an elegant structure and a wonderful persistence of fruit framed by quality French oak. Vibrant yet perfectly approachable in its youth, this generous wine will certainly reward with medium-term cellaring.
Tasting Note: A medium to full-bodied Cabernet with plenty of depth offering blackberries, dark chocolate and cassis.
