Excellent News!

We are honoured to see our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon rate in the Excellent category of Australia’s paramount guide to fine wine.  A flagship of the Xanadu brand, our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has been proudly described as “a wine with intense blackcurrant and herb garden aromas, superb richness and concentration, and vigorous, fine, chalky tannins.” The Classification remarks top vintages for this wine as 2014, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009.

Conceived by Stewart Langton and Andrew Caillard MW in 1990, the Classification was created as a way to codify and support the fine wines of Australia.  It has since become the definitive guide to Australian fine wine, used as a reference throughout the wine world.  Commending pedigree, the Classification reflects the consistency of the best Australian wines over a minimum of 10 vintages rather than a particular vintage.
