Allegory Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Allegory Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Allegory Sauvignon Blanc Semillon – The racy, vibrant blend of this  Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is the essence of everything good about Western Australia and our special coastal vineyards. Two great grapes harmoniously combined to produce a riotously fresh, fragrant and friendly wine. The pairing of these two famous grape varieties has, over time, evolved into the region’s signature white wine – nobody does it better!

Sauvignon is the star of the show. Upfront, fresh, lovely, highly aromatic, very showy. Semillon, on the other hand, is all about weight and viscosity, length and structure. The more reserved character, behind the scene, holding the show together.

Clear and pale straw in colour with lovely fresh fruit aromas of guava, pear and lemon zest tickled with wafts of jasmine florals. The palate shows apple, pear and passionfruit notes around a key lime citrus background. A bright, juicy wine with heaps of fruit flavour and a zesty acidity.

Allegory Shiraz

Allegory Shiraz

Allegory Shiraz – The Allegory Shiraz is an opulent, full-bodied wine with excellent concentrated fruit flavours and soft approachable palate. It will drink well now and will develop complex aging characters of rich earth, leather and forest floor over the next 5 years.

Shiraz has distinct identities in its Australian home – the wines of Barossa, McLaren Vale, Hunter Valley, Great Southern and Margaret River all express different stories. This  Shiraz shows the Southwestern version of the grape in classic, juicy style – fruit-forward, plush, and downright delicious!

This shiraz displays all the strengths and beneficial flavour characteristics common to the regions which comprise the blend. Vibrant, ripe and alluring raspberry, cherry and blackberry aromas are beautifully complemented by subtle vanilla and baking spice accents, and all these elements flow through to the palate where they mingle with gentle mocha and cinnamon notes. The mouthfeel is silky soft yet with sufficient tannin grip to retain flavour on the mid-palate and provide a pleasant lingering aftertaste of pure Shiraz satisfaction.

Enjoy now or keep for the next five years.

Exmoor Drive Chardonnay

Xanadu Exmoor Drive Chardonnay

Xanadu Exmoor Drive Chardonnay

This bright and refreshing wine offers aromas and flavours of pear, grapefruit and nectarine with underlying hints of toast. It is medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and a crisp, lingering finish.

92 points James Halliday
White peach and grapefruit stand out on the bouquet: a little more subtle is a saline/oyster shell like character which adds some interesting minerality. Fruit drives the palate, and there’s plenty of it, with juicy stone fruit and citrus all the way. Barrel ferment contributes some creaminess of texture, and the acidity provides freshness and verve from start to finish. (8/2018)
91 points Wine & Spirits
Xanadu’s least expensive chardonnay is two-thirds fermented in barrel, the balance in stainless steel. Only about five percent of the finished blend has seen new oak, and the wine is so fresh you might think it’s unwooded. Bright, brisk, clean and clear, this tastes of green apple and chamomile, with tart notes of underripe peach and grapefruit. Ready to drink tonight with any fresh catch. (10/2018)

Details from the winery about Xanadu Exmoor Drive Chardonnay: “All components (the majority being Gingin clone Chardonnay) were pressed without crushing, retaining relatively high solids in the juice after settling overnight. 65% of the blend was fermented in seasoned French oak barriques (only 5% new oak in final blend), the remaining 35% of the blend was fermented in tank using an aromatic yeast strain. Wild fermentation was encouraged on barrel fermented components, in order to introduce complexity and personality into the wine. All of the individual barrel fermented batches which make up the blend were lees stirred throughout a nine-month oak maturation period, without any malolactic fermentation; gaining texture throughout the year. The final blend was put together in November 2017. Pale straw colour. The bouquet of this fresh, fruit-driven Chardonnay displays honeydew melon, pear, and citrus characters with underlying hints of loquats and hay. Oak is merely a bystander, yet its subtle influence adds another layer to the fruit aromas. The palate is medium bodied offering gala apples and stone fruits with a delicate creamy texture derived from lees stirring. A bright refreshing wine; crisp and dry, with a lingering fruit finish.”

The Hay Shed Hill vineyard is situated on a picturesque property that was established as a group settlement farm for returned soldiers from the First World War. Known as Sussex Vale the property was originally a dairy farm. The current homestead, considerably renovated, still has much of the original Group Settlement look and feel.
Vines were first planted in the early 1970s. In the late 1980’s the vineyard was bought by the Morrison Family and the wine brand Hay Shed Hill was established taking its name from the local reference to the hay shed located on the property. The sister label, Pitchfork, was developed to complement the single vineyard Hay Shed Hill label. A series of ownership changes saw numerous alterations to labels, wine style and distribution until the current group of partners bought back the farm and the brand in late 2006 and returned to the original concept of producing wine with integrity that expresses the quality of the site.
The Hay Shed Hill vineyard is located in the Willyabrup Valley, the premier sub-region of the Margaret River Wine region. Only 5 Km from the Indian Ocean with an elevated aspect, the vineyard thus enjoys the benefit of the ‘doctor’ the well-known sea breeze that comes off the ocean each afternoon and cools down the vineyard giving the fruit a much cooler climate character than the latitude of the vineyard might suggest. The vineyard is hilly with several aspects ranging from steep south facing slopes on which the best Chardonnay is located, to equally steep north facing slopes where the best Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys the full face of the sun. The majority of the vineyard is dry grown producing small yields of outstanding fruit.

Three Lions Great Southern Sauvignon Blanc

Three Lions Great Southern Sauvignon Blanc

Three Lions Great Southern Sauvignon Blanc

Three Lions Great Southern Sauvignon Blanc – Tropical and stone fruit aromas lead into a full flavoured and balanced palate, featuring white peach, lemon and pink grapefruit. A great example of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc that finishes crisp, with good citrus, stonefruit, and river pebble minerality lingering.

The Plantagenet’s were the first truly armigerous royal dynasty of England meaning they were entitled to strike and bear various coats of arms. The arms of this noble, later royal, family, Gules, three lions passant guardant, termed colloquially “the arms of England” were first adopted by King Richard the Lionheart (1189–1199), son of King Henry II of England (1154–1189), son of Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou (1113/17–1151).
These Three Lions signified royalty, history, power and a code of conduct that was instantly recognized wherever they were displayed.
So too with this range of wines. They are from the oldest established winery in Great Southern – they are wines with power and provenance. The Three Lion coat of arms of Plantagenet Wines is a recognized symbol of quality and prestige.

Plantagenet Wines embodies the best of the west with its distinctive wines of finesse and elegance. As a pioneer of the Great Southern region, Plantagenet’s reputation is celebrated for its rich heritage, its expressive wines and family-owned sensibility, making it one of the most trusted wine brands in the country.
The rich tapestry of the Plantagenet story begins in 1968, when English migrant Tony Smith envisaged great things for his land in Mount Barker. With his small inheritance, he bought a farm called Bouverie in the Plantagenet Shire and literally planted the seeds of the Plantagenet future – Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes bore the fruit of what would become some of the most highly awarded and sought after wines, both nationally and internationally. The fruit was picked in 1974 and the wines showed exciting potential, enough for Smith to convert a local apple packing shed into a winery and get to work making tight and lean Shiraz with typical regional spiciness and full-bodied cabernet. Embracing the conditions of the Great Southern’s cool climate, Smith went on to plant further varieties, including Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The vineyards all benefit from their coastal proximity, enjoying abundant rainfall and cool twilight breezes from the neighbouring Southern Ocean.
