Winemaker's Notes:

Deep Crimson in color and laden with rich fruit flavor and warmth, this exuberant young wine invites immediate drinking. A medium-bodied dry red, it also has the backbone to enable it to improve with up to three years cellaring. The wines supple tannins are matched with leathery, spicy characters interwoven with the ripe berry fruit and a hint of American oak.

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.
