Winemaker's Notes:

Oxford Landing Merlot 2005 is deep crimson in color, with hints of purple. The nose offers red berry and plum aromas, complemented by hints of anise and black jube. In classic Merlot style, the palate is generous and full of sweet plum and berry fruits. Subtle, fleshy tannins lead to a soft finish with lingering flavors of red berries and spice.

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.
