2018 Xanadu "DJL" Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Margaret River Western Australia

SKU #1424726

Xanadu has had roots in Western Australia’s Margaret River region since it was founded in 1977. For decades, the winery quietly produced Cabernet Sauvignon from its estate properties right outside the village of Margaret River. Then in 2005, the winery was purchased by entrepreneur Doug Rathbone, who recognized the immense potential of the property and set Xanadu on track to becoming a globally recognized producer. Glenn Goodall was hired on as head winemaker in 2006. He spent the following years conducting trials to improve the health and quality of the vineyard along with improving practices in the winery. Winery notes: "An easy drinking classic’ Margaret River wine. The zesty palate offers freshly squeezed lemon/lime flavours combined with tropical fruits and a touch of zesty spice. A ‘drink now’ style - best consumed while bright and youthful."

With a blend consisting of 63% Sauvignon Blanc, 35% Semillon, and 2% Muscadelle, you might expect the 2018 Xanadu “DJL” to have more of an Old World sensibility. But that notion is turned entirely on its head by its sheer vibrancy and brilliance. Clean, bright and focused, this white Bordeaux blend showcases passionfruit, flint, and lime, with stunning length of finish.

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great wine regions are in the southeastern area of the continent, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia; Yarra Yarra Valley and Pyrenees in Victoria; and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc from the land Down Under, where Riesling also enjoys international acclaim. While many equate Aussie wines with “value,” there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
