Xanadu DJL Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2015
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
The bouquet displays bright fruit, passionfruit and thyme aromas with hints of guava and subtle, intriguing funky characters in the background. The lively palate is medium bodied with wonderful clarity offering citrus, crunchy tropical fruits, spice and dried herbs. A beautifully structured wine, layered with textural elements yet with a crystalline backbone of quartz and zesty acidity. The influence of fermentation in seasoned oak has added complexity to this otherwise quintessentially crisp, fruit driven blend.

Situated only four kilometres from the town centre of Margaret River and an equal distance from the magnificent coastline, Xanadu is a true pioneer of the region with a long history of producing wines with distinct character that embody all that is the Margaret River.
Xanadu was established by Dr John Lagan, an Irishman, who arrived in Margaret River in 1968 and was inspired by the pioneering spirit of the region. At the time, the potential of Margaret River as one of the world’s finest wine-producing regions was only just being considered. So less than a decade on, Dr Lagan with his wife Eithne established one of the region’s earlier vineyards, planting his first vines in 1977.
Lovers of literature will remember Xanadu as Samuel Coleridge’s mysterious, idyllic, exotic city; home of Kubla Khan. Dr Lagan, himself a great literature enthusiast, drew parallels between Coleridge’s visions of utopia and his newly adopted home, and thus the name Xanadu was born.
True to its poetic namesake, Xanadu is in an idyllic setting where the now 65 hectares of vines on the original estate flourish in the rich, free draining gravel soils of the Margaret River region. In this unique maritime climate enjoys an abundant supply of water and is sheltered by forests of magnificent marri trees.
Xanadu continues to be a family owned and operated winery dedicated to producing wines of quality and distinction that reflect the true characteristics of the Margaret River region. This has been highlighted by the numerous trophies and accolades Xanadu has been awarded, including James Halliday’s Wine of the Year in 2014.
