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.
WINEMAKING NOTES: The fruit was destemmed and then crushed with open rollers to introduce whole berries into the ferment. The core component was fermented in static fermenters at 26oC for 6 days. One portion, which made up 35% of the blend, was pressed early and finished fermentation in predominantly new French oak. After fermentation, the various batches underwent MLF and 14 months maturation in a selection of fine French oak barriques (35% new oak in total) prior to assembling the blend and bottling.
