Winemaker's Notes:

With drought conditions persisting throughout the growing season, significant rainfall in January caused both welcome relief and concern for disease potential. Fortunately damage was minimal with canopies drying quickly and little impact on fruit quality. Yields, particularly for red varieties, were well below average because of the drought, leading to accelerated berry ripening. This called for quick decision making in the vineyard to ensure fruit was picked at optimum flavor development. The end result is a wine with excellent depth of color, weight and tannin structure.

The result is a wine that is deep crimson in color with lifted blackberry, plum and cedar aromas with hints of eucalyptus and violets. Dark berry fruits, fruit pastille flavors and savory spice give this wine a rich, mouthfilling palate which is complemented by lingering tannins. Generous flavor length completes this Cabernet Sauvignon.

About Oxford Landing:

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.

Today, Oxford Landing has matured into one of Australia's most innovative viticultural enterprises delivering varietal flavor through a collection of value priced varietal wines.
