Xanadu DJL Shiraz 2013
"Mostly Margaret River shiraz from the Stevens Road vineyard though with (13%) help from Frankland River. A touch of viognier too. 40% new oak. Natural aka indigenous aka wild ferment.
Sweet and luxurious to begin though it becomes finer, drier and more elegant as it works to its conclusion. A showstopper turns serious, almost moody. Blackberry, bitumen, mulch, woodspice and sappy oak. Tannin is ultra fine-grained. Indeed it feels smooth-to-the-touch throughout. In the end, the value is very high." - Campbell Mattinson
