Skøn Chardonnay fra Margaret River i vestaustralien med masser af høje ratings - bl.a. 96 point af James Halliday, 94 point i Decanter og 93 point af James Suckling!
96/100 point - James Halliday:
"Predominantly estate-grown on the Stevens Road and Lagan Vineyards, Gingin clone, hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, and wild yeast-fermented in French oak (21% new), matured and stirred for 9 months. There is an inevitability about the very high quality of the Xanadu wines these days; thus this very intense and powerful, yet perfectly delineated and balanced wine is no surprise, nor is its extreme length."
94/100 point - Decanter:
This middle-tier wine is taut, with neon-bright, zingy lemon and grapefruit drive, struck-match and savoury chew."
93/100 point - James Suckling:
"A layered and beautiful chardonnay with sliced apple and mineral character. Full body, tight and gorgeous. Drink now. Screw cap."
91/100 point - Parker/The Wine Advocate:
"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."
