Winemaker's Notes:

Crimson with purple hues, the 2008 Oxford Landing Cabernet Sauvignon displays aromas of lifted violets and blackcurrants with hints of eucalyptus, Satsuma plums and cedar. The violets and dark berry fruit flavors persist on the palate and are complimented by savory spices which give the wine a rich mouth filling palate that is completed by the lingering Cabernet tannins.

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.
