Winemaker's Notes:

Oxford Landing Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2004 is a deep plum in colour with hints of magenta. The nose shows bright fruit aromas of fragrant raspberries and plums, a hint of white pepper, and a dash of nutmeg and allspice. The palate is generous and fruit driven with layers of cherries, red berries and spice from the Grenache. Fuller plum and dark fruit flavours from the Shiraz provide flesh and weight in the mid palate with the fine, soft tannins providing structure and a slightly savoury 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.
