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.

  • Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Good wine but it needs a few years for the tannins to soften and the ripe fruit to mellow. Read More

  • Xanadu Cabernet 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Somewhat dumb nose with a bit of menthol and blackcurrant. The mouthfeel is soft, slightly tannic with a mild stemmy finish that is not altogether welcome. Flavours are, however, correct for the variety and the region. Will last a few years more but probably not worth it. Very decent value in a Bordelais style. 86 points. Read More

  • Xanadu Winery Rathbone Wine Group Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This Margaret River Chard was clearly barrel fermented (as stated) judging by the obvious yeast and fine oak on the nose. On entry, the acidity remains prominent, clean and full of appeal; the barrel-fermented nature of the flavor profile is pleasant and the wine is very satisfying on a Spring evening. Elegant and modern, I do not hesitate to ... Read More

  • Xanadu Next of Kin Shiraz 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty floral on the nose with green peppercorn spice, jammy red currant fruit, some well-integrated cigar box notes and a little tropical fruit/orange rind. This is very cool, crisp and focused in the mouth. The flavors of currant, boysenberry and plum are fresh and brisk, with very subtle spice, soil and cocoa notes helping to frame the fruit....
