2014 Xanadu Chardonnay
Wine Rating 
 
94

The majority of the wine is from the Stevens Road and Lagan vineyards, the wine saw a portion of new oak (21 %) and was matured on lees for 9 months. The resultant wine has great lines and structure, representative of the quality and class of Xanadu's more expensive Chardonnay's at a very affordable price.

A light yellow in the glass with citrus and tightly bound stone fruits accentuated by flint and suggestion of oak on the nose. There is a taut elegance to the wine , with a finely detailed frame of acidity and citrus given enough depth of stone fruits and subtle lees characters to have presence now, but more than anything holding the wine in stead for a long and rewarding time in the cellar.
