Chateau Xanadu Cabernet Franc 1996

Member Review by Michael at MAX:

1996 CABERNET FRANC Chateau Xanadu Margaret River Clear, bright colour no singe of age Restrained earthy fruit on nose creamy finish 24 Hours later Very tight wine well put together Vibrant fruit now showing through, still quite young and fresh Finishing with a creamy texture and pleasing fruit acid The wine is 13 years old and shows no great sine of age I would liked to have given the wine a further 24 hours to open and see what more it had to show, but I drank it all

One of Western Australia's most established wineries, producing quality wines through traditional winemaking techniques, together with an award winning restaurant, Xanadu Wines is 'unmistakably Margaret River'. John and Eithne Lagan arrived at Margaret River in 1968, first planting their vineyard in 1977. The Lagans planted the first vines in what is now one of the region’s oldest vineyards. They named their vineyard Xanadu after the poem Kubla Khan by the romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. 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.
