Margaret River is Western Australia's premier wine producing region, and it has built its reputation on outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon that rivals the best in the world.

Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are also successfully grown here.

Shiraz isn't considered the strongest variety in Margaret River, but Leeuwin's 2014 Art Series Shiraz is an attractive berry and violet-scented wine, with hints of cracked pepper and bay leaf adding complexity to the silky-textured, medium-bodied Shiraz...

Xanadu 2017 DJL Chardonnay 750ml

Xanadu's experience, its great vineyards, great winemakers and contacts across the length and breadth of Margaret River allow it to come up with an entry level chardonnay as good as this. It ticks all the boxes, even if they're not all big. White stone...
