Wine of the Week AU

Xanadu Chardonnay 2015, Margaret River WA, AUD $37

A stunning example of modern Australian chardonnay. Energetic and vibrant with white nectarine and lemon aromas. The palate is tight, bright and dazzling with a core of sweet, juicy, lemony fruit. The oak is a mere shadow, supporting the fruit yet staying out of the limelight. Extended lees ageing rounds out the palate and the finish is long and satisfying.
