Xanadu Exmoor Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, Australia
There are vibrant aromas of ripe blackcurrants, blueberries and plums with a hint of spice and toasty oak. The palate is packed full of juicy fruits of the forest, cassis and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the fruits are supported by supple tannins. A balanced wine with a persistent fruit finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot
Tucked away in Australia’s south-west corner just 4km from Margaret River’s town centre and an equal distance from the magnificent coastline, Xanadu has a long history of crafting outstanding wines that embody all the region has to offer.
Xanadu was established by Dr John Lagan, an Irishman who arrived in Margaret River in 1968 with his wife Eithne and was inspired by the pioneering spirit of the region. At the time, the potential of Margaret River as one of the world’s finest wine-producing regions was only just being considered. Less than a decade on in 1977, the couple planted their first vines, establishing one of the region’s earliest vineyards.
Lovers of literature will remember Xanadu as Samuel Coleridge’s mysterious, idyllic, exotic city; home of Kubla Khan. Dr Lagan, himself a great literature enthusiast, drew parallels between Coleridge’s visions of utopia and his newly adopted home, and thus the name Xanadu was born.
Today, Xanadu create expressive, regional wines of uncompromising quality, Xanadu takes an intuitive approach to winemaking, holding a deep respect for the vineyards – where true quality begins.
