Timing is everything.
Our philosophy is strongly held, but extremely simple: grow great fruit, pick it at the right time and guide it through to the bottle without too much intervention. Which sounds easy, but actually requires a profound depth of knowledge, years of experience, and nerves of steel.
Winemaker Glenn Goodall has been at Xanadu since 2003, the wines express his personality and ours. The focus is always on offering lively fruit characters with depth and precision and styles which allow the distinct personality of Margaret River to shine through.
And personality is everything. It comes through in the vineyard, in the care we take neither to drown wines in oak nor to beat them into submission. We only use French oak from the best coopers, allowing the subtlety in the wine to show through.
Our wines are not contrived but are gently eased into being. Natural fermentation and non-interventional winemaking have become winemaking clichés, but it’s a simple formula, and it works when you have great fruit.
