Winemaker's Notes:

Despite the rain, weather conditions in the critical months of December to February were favorable for ripening and resulted in quite early flavor development in Chardonnay. Accelerated ripening and block variation, as a consequence of the drought, called for quick decisions in the vineyard in order to select a good cross-section of flavors.

The end result is a wine with good texture, weight and flavors ranging from zesty and fresh citrus through to richer, riper tropical characters.

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.
