Xanadu is one of the shining lights of Margaret River with their wines rarely failing to deliver exceptional drinking. The 2019 Xanadu DJL Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a benchmark example of this white blend Margaret River does so well.
A beautifully structured white wine, the 2019 Xanadu DJL Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is packed with plenty of vibrant citrus and tropical fruit flavours. With layers of texture, spice and a subtle creamy mouthfeel, this delivers a level of complexity rarely found in this popular Margaret River style. A high quality dry white wine that offers ripping value drinking at this discounted price.
"96 Points. Takes on the power, hitting on where others fall by the wayside. The flavours are conventional enough, but their density is in a league of its own. Apple, herbs, citrus and tropical fruits are all there in abundance. Partial barrel ferment is the key to its complexity and texture. Screwcap. 12.5% alc. To 2022. $25. Special Value"- James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021.

Today, Xanadu stands among the finest and most consistent Margaret River wineries, with their Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends among the standouts.
