Oxford Landing Viognier 2006
Viognier from South Australia, Australia
The Oxford Landing Vineyard was established in 1958 on the banks of the majestic Murray River in South Australia. It's an idyllic place, distinguished by clear blue skies, rich red soil and is abundant in golden sunshine – the perfect environment for growing grapes with vibrant, fruity flavors.
Oxford Landing Viognier 2006 is pale gold in colour with green hues. The aroma is intense musk and white flowers with hints of stone fruit. The palate is rich, very long and ripe, with stone fruit and musk flavours. This wine exhibits fresh, silky and lively Viognier textures.
Oxford Landing Winery
Oxford Landing isn't some invented name on a wine label. It's a real place, a real vineyard, that lies alongside the River Murray near the South Australian river town of Waikerie. Wyndham Hill Smith found this place in 1958 and Yalumba purchased the block naming it Oxford Landing after a nearby site where drovers once grazed and watered sheep on the long journey to Adelaide from northern pastoral properties.Like the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.
