Every year we submit our wines to Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate online and this year reviewer Lisa Perrotti-Brown gave some great reviews.
2014 Reserve Chardonnay 91 points | Available now
Coming from the “Home”/Lagan block at Xanadu, planted 1979-1981 to Gin Gin, the 2014 Reserve Chardonnay reveals vibrant apricots and tropical fruit notes with hints of baking bread, marzipan and honeysuckle. Rich, medium to full-bodied and concentrated in the mouth, this is less taut than Stevens Road and more opulent perhaps, just lacking slightly in complexity comparativel
2014 Stevens Road Chardonnay 93 points | Available now
Coming from 35-year-old Gin Gin clone vines planted in a single vineyard situated across the street from Leeuwin Estate, the 2014 Stevens Road Chardonnay is a total knock-out. Possessing a lovely lemon and orange-laced nose with struck flint and almond paste notes, plus touches of cedar and ginger, it fills the mouth with intense citrus and savory flavors with this perfect combination of spices coming through on the long, long finish that keeps you begging for more. Love it.
2013 Stevens Road Cabernet Sauvignon 91 points | Available Now
Deep garnet-purple color, the 2013 Stevens Road Cabernet Sauvignon reveals intense notes of ripe black currant, blackberry and mulberry with earth, bay leaf, pencil shavings and tobacco nuances plus a hint of spice box. Rich, and concentrated in the medium-bodied mouth, it has a firm backbone and a long, layered finish. Great length and layers. Still very young, it really needs another couple of years in bottle to show its stuff.
2014 Xanadu Chardonnay 91 points
The 2014 Chardonnay is scented of ripe peaches, pink grapefruit and lemon curd with hints of baking bread, marzipan and ginger. Medium-bodied with a lovely satiny texture, it fills
the mouth with citrus, stone fruit and toasty flavors, finishing with great freshness.
