Grapes are crushed and destemmed before a predominantly small batch vinification in static fermenters for seven to eight days at 24°C to 26°C. The cap is managed to a combination of aerative pumpovers and regular plunging by hand. Upon completion, a third of components are treated to a period of extended maceration on skins before a gentle pressing and course of malolactic. Xanadu is matured fourteen months in a high proportion of new French oak, followed by assemblage and return to oak for two months before bottling.
Deep red with garnet hues. Ripe fruits of the forest, boysenberries and cassis integrated with dark chocolate, cinnamon and spice. Full bodied yet refined, the plush palate offers ripe, jubey fruits such as blackcurrants, plums and mulberries framed by subtle cedar/ spicy oak characters.
