Xanadu Exmoor Shiraz 2016

Margaret River Shiraz often sits in the shadow of Cabernet from the region, but this is a bottle of Shiraz that shines through.

Xanadu Exmoor Shiraz is a full-body bouquet displaying ample depth with plenty of blackberries, redcurrant and spices. It has a deep red colour with purple hues with hints of licorice and subtle toasty oak influences. The jubey fruit and approachable tannins combine to produce a generous wine with a subtle structure and a lovely persistence of flavours.

The growing season began with an early budburst after a relatively mild Winter with reasonable rainfall. The beautiful Spring weather which followed which led to good flowering/fruit set and improved yields for most varieties in the region. Fine, warm weather during Summer saw sugar accumulation accelerate quickly in the whites, until a significant rain event mid-January stalled the ripening process until the fine weather returned soon after. While the unusual January rain did present some challenges in the vineyard, it was certainly welcomed by the reds which were just beginning veraison. The warm, dry weather throughout February was fantastic, ensuring the whites achieved flavour ripeness and enabling the reds to attain flavour and tannin ripeness at full physiological maturity. Fruit for this blend was predominantly Estate grown (85%) on our Boodjudup and Stevens Road vineyards in the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River, complimented by a portion (15%) of fruit from a mature vineyard in Karridale.

The fruit was destemmed and then crushed with open rollers to introduce whole berries into the ferment. After fermentation in both static and rotary fermenters, the various batches underwent MLF and 14 months maturation in a selection of fine French oka barriques (25% new) prior to assembling the blend and bottling. Perfectly approachable in its youth, this wine will also sit comfortably in your cellar for several years.
