Xanadu’s Next of Kin chardonnay from the 2011 vintage is a pretty sound wine for $18.
Quite aromatic for the grape variety, it reminds of white peach, cashew, lemon and grapefruit. Its palate is characterised by light grapefruit and cashew flavours and some lingering length. It is acceptable to good in terms of quality – while not overly complex, it offers a ready to drink now chardonnay that is supported by balanced flavours and good persistence on the palate, all with change from $20. Acceptable to Good
