Winemaker's Notes:

Raspberry and fruit pastille aromas with hints of lilac and spice. A succulent and rich fruit driven palate, starting with a compote of mixed red berries and finishing with subtle velvety tannins. Plums and jubey fruit flavors are a feature of this wine and linger on the palate well after the wine has been consumed.

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.
