Xanadu Chardonnay 2010

Call it terroir, a common winemaking ethos forged by the stunning isolation of the Margaret River wine region (even by Australian standards) or just plain luck, but there is a certain similarity in quality and style that I found with Margaret River chardonnay.  And it works for me.

Xanadu's 2010 chardonnay is a bright pale intensity lemon in colour.  It has classic Margaret River aromatics, that are medium of intensity, of white nectarine, oak (evident but not overdone - more Chassagne than butterball), a slight honeyed character and certainly some spice.  The palate is dry with medium acidity, medium(+) body and balanced flavours of spices, lemon citrus, cedar and medium length.

This is a good wine due to its balance of fruit and elegance.  It is ready to drink now, and proved to be very enjoyable.  Good
