Bouquet: The complex aroma displays dense plummy fruit characters combined with a slight gamey, savoury edge. Maturation in fine French oak has contributed wellintegrated smoky oak nuances along with hints of cloves and spice.
Palate: The full-bodied palate offers dark plums, mulberries and chocolate characters, while the depth of fruit and firm sinewy tannins define the structure of the wine.
Xanadu now 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.
