Margaret River, Western Australia   |    750ml   |    14%
Xanadu Wines has for many years been one of Margaret River's most consistently high quality wineries; their 'DJL' range has recently been delivering some particularly impressive value offerings. The 2015 Xanadu DJL Shiraz was one of our biggest selling wines of the past twelve months and the 2016 vintage is another cracker.

A vibrant, flavoursome and super approachable Margaret River Shiraz, the 2017 Xanadu DJL Shiraz is bursting with blackberries, redcurrant and ripe forest fruits flavours. Ready to be enjoyed now and long into the future, this is another bargain Shiraz from the team at Xanadu.

"93 Points. The words ‘return to form’ are apt. Can Margaret River shiraz be described as delightful? This wine makes the argument. It’s fluid, sweetly fruited, composed, tense-enough to lend it shape but in general: calm. Berries, mocha and woodsy spice notes are the conduits. So perfectly balanced. The glory of the mid-weight red. It offers excellent buying/drinking. Tasted: Aug19 Alcohol: 14% Price: $25 Screwcap. Drink: 2019 - 2029" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

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.
