Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Xanadu Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – A Cabernet that is simply oozing class. Richly layered and densely packed fruit fills the palate with an opulent and powerful intensity. Flavours of blackcurrant and mulberry with a light lift of leafy black olive. This is classic Margaret River Cabernet with power, poise and stylish expression.

Gourmet Traveller 96 points!
“This outstanding cabernet has great colour and a multiplicity of black fruits in the bouqet with a faint tinge of dried herb and perfectly dovetailed oak. Rich, full-bodied, lush blackberry fruit takes centre stage”
Gourmet Traveller, 2014

“The full bodied palate is generous and crammed full of ripe forest fruits, cassis, and dark chocolate characters. Powerful, yet refined in structure, the fleshy fruits are complimented with an ample amount of supple tannins; all culminating together to provide a dense, persistent berry fruit finish.”

Xanadu

Xanadu has a long history of producing wines of distinction. By the early Eighties it was already winning awards, and had begun establishing a reputation as one of the finest wineries in the region, a reputation that is being consolidated since the purchased of Xanadu Wines by the Rathbone family in 2005.

Western Australia

Regarded as one of Australia’s best wine producing regions. It is synonymous with a new era in Australian wine. Margaret River really began its vineyard life as a result of two research reports from Californian viticulturalist Professor Harold Olmo and the Western Australian scientist Dr John Gladstone. In 1965 Dr Gladstone’s report indicated that the region had all the attributes to produce world quality wines. This advise was acted on by Dr Tom Cullity who set up his Vasse Felix vineyard near Willyabrup, followed by Dr Kevin Cullen and his wife Di who set up Cullen Wines. The climate is regarded as ‘cool’ because of its long slow ripening season. This region is regarded along with Coonawarra and the Yarra Valley as one of the premium Cabernet Sauvignon areas in Australia. The main wine styles: Red – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet-Merlot, Shiraz; White – Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc, Verdelho.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Probably the world’s most famous red grape variety. Originated from Bordeaux and has been present in Australia since 1832.

Wherever it has been planted the resulting wine has developed its own identity yet it is always recognisable. Although it will vary in intensity the aroma will always be dominated by berry characteristics in the classic wines and the tannins will be firm or textured and soften with age. Cabernet Sauvignon is high in acid and tannin and remains fresh for many years. It can be earthy and display strong blackcurrant flavours. The naturally high tannin and inherent complexity mean all Cabernet Sauvignons will improve with age.

Coonawarra, with its prized ‘terra rossa’ soils, Margaret River, Mount Barker (Great Southern) and Yarra Valley regions are considered the premium Cabernet Sauvignon areas in Australia.
