Xanadu Chardonnay (Margaret River, WA)
The bouquet of this elegant yet powerful Chardonnay offers fresh pears, nectarine, and citrus fruits with underlying hints of complexity with flinty/funky, green mango characters. The palate is medium bodied and tightly coiled, displaying pears, white fleshed stone fruits and tangy lemony/grapefruit flavours. The wine offers a fine boned structure complimented by a lovely yoghurty texture derived from lees stirring. Taut, yet opulent, the intense fruit and bright acidity combine to focus the wine perfectly to a crisp, lingering fruit finish. A modern style of Chardonnay, displaying classic Margaret River hallmarks.
