Winemaker's Notes:

Individual selected parcels of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre are fermented in static potters under warm temperature conditions. The Grenache parcels are also given post ferment maceration on their skins to allow maximum color and flavor extraction. Careful blending of the final components results in a wine which showcases the special synergy that can be achieved with these three classic varieties.

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.
