In the 'house style' for Xanadu chardonnay. Poised and elegant, the aromas and flavours are in the citrus and stone fruit spectrum, the oak beautifully integrated and providing texture as much as anything. Grapefruit-like acidity runs evenly through the palate, gathering and lingering on the finish.
Showing a bit more ripe peach character than the 2016, Xanadu's 2015 Chardonnay is another winner from this consistent producer. Hints of pencil shavings and citrus bring added complexity, while the medium-bodied palate is smooth and silky, coming to a long, lime-driven finish. Drink this barrel-fermented, non-malolactic wine over the next 4-5 years. (JC)
Green-tinged yellow. Intense lemon zest, white peach and jasmine scents are underscored by smoky mineral and anise nuances. Taut citrus and pit fruit flavors show very good energy, and a gingery note adds spicy bite. Turns fleshier and smoother on the focused finish, which features subtle smokiness and lingering florality. There's a Burgundian restraint and texture to this wine, especially after it gets a bit of air. (JR)
