John and Eithne Lagan arrived at Margaret River in 1968, first planting their vineyard in 1977. The Lagans planted the first vines in what is now one of the region’s oldest vineyards. Xanadu has a long history of producing wines of distinction and today stands as one of Margaret River's finest wineries.
The fruit was crushed and destemmed then fermented in a combination of Static and Rotary fermenters at 26oC for 5 – 7 days. Approximately 20% of the components experienced a pre- fermentation cold soak, with another 30% being left for a period of extended maceration on skins for 28 days. The various batches underwent MLF in tank and barrel before 14 months maturation in a selection French oak barriques (20% new oak).
