Xanadu Next of Kin Margaret River Chardonnay

Is this the best sub-$20 Margaret River chardonnay? Yes. And this week it’s the best sub-$15 ($14 at Our Cellar). It ticks all the boxes like nothing else at this price: pure lemon blossom, grapefruit and white peach, powerful Gin Gin clone, lively energy of malic acidity, texture of barrel fermentation and complexity of lees stirring. It all culminates in a persistent and zesty style that contrasts depth and complexity with crisp definition.
