Winemaker's Notes:

Pale golden straw with vibrant green hues, the 2009 Oxford Landing Chardonnay displays lifted aromas of fresh peaches, citrus and honeydew melon with an underlying hint of nougat and nutmeg and cinnamon spice. The wine has an even texture and flavors of white stone fruit and fresh citrus. The fine creamy texture is a result of continual lees stirring after fermentation. The palate finishes crisply with a lingering tantalising acidity.

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.
