Winemaker's Notes:

The Chardonnay for Oxford Landing is grown on a range of sandy soils of varying depths over limestone. Careful irrigation control on these sites promotes well balanced vine canopies which protect fruit from overexposure and allow the maximum retention of flavors.

Oxford Landing Chardonnay is pale gold in color with hints of green. Lifted stone fruit, melon and citrus aromas are complex with subtle hints of white nougat. The palate shows fresh peach and citrus flavors which are balanced by a rich, creamy mid palate. A lively acidity complements the palate richness, leading to a long refreshing finish.

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.
