Xanadu Chardonnay 2010
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
