Xanadu Wins Australia’s Best Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay

Published on: 2nd November 2019

For what is now the 7th year in a row, Xanadu has taken home the Cabernet Sauvignon Trophy at the 2019 National Wine Show of Australia, this time with the 2017 Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon.

In addition to this outstanding achievement, a testament to the consistency in producing the best Cabernet in Australia, Xanadu has also been awarded the Chardonnay, Single Vineyard White and White Wine of Show Trophies for the 2017 Reserve Chardonnay.

The successful show results brings the Xanadu trophy tally across Cabernet and Chardonnay at the National Wine Show to 20 since 2009, continuing to illustrate Xanadu as one of Australia’s top producers of both Cabernet and Chardonnay.

The pedigree of these wines is apparent right across the Australian wine circuit, with Xanadu’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines having won 4 out of the 5 Capital City shows in 2019 alone, finishing a successful year with the National Trophy.

Of the wins, Xanadu Chief Winemaker, Glenn Goodall, says “I’m stoked!… To have our Reserve Chardonnay recognised is a great testament to the pedigree of our Lagan Estate vineyard and is so rewarding for everyone involved at Xanadu. The icing on the cake was to win another Cabernet Trophy, especially here at the National Show… Unbelievable! It has been an incredible year for Xanadu, and I could not be prouder of the team.”

In the year that Goodall is celebrating his 20th year of Xanadu winemaking, this new achievement is a product of his passion and dedication that infiltrates all things at Xanadu.
