Unfortunately, we made the difficult decision not to produce a 2015 Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2015 vintage. Whilst there were some great Cabernet batches, none were quite reaching the exceptional level that we’ve had the good fortune of harvesting over the previous 6 to 7 years (Stevens Road Cabernet aside, of course).
The 2016 Xanadu Reserve Chardonnay follows the highly acclaimed 2015 vintage and continues to be sourced exclusively from Xanadu’s oldest vineyard, the Lagan Estate.
Launching online and at the cellar door on 1 June 2018, reviews are just starting to come in and we couldn’t be prouder.
An amazing 98 points for our Reserve Chardonnay and a glowing endorsement from Ray Jordan in The West Australian stating “now well and truly among the Margaret River elite for chardonnay”.
Over on The Real Review Huon Hooke awarded 95 points to our Reserve Chardonnay saying that it was “delicious and very appetising”. Huon also awarded 95 points to the Stevens Road Cabernet and 92 points to the Stevens Road Chardonnay.
