Winemaker's Notes:

Quite dense plum and dark cherry fruit aromas dominate with underlying hints of anise and fruit pastille. This vintage has produced a much more savory, elegant style of Merlot. Still showing the characteristic suppleness and mid palate weight generosity that we expect from Merlot, this wine also has a savory edge which makes it a perfect accompaniment with food. Although tightly structured, the finish is soft with lingering berry fruit flavors.

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.
