Winemaker's Notes:

Crimson with brilliant purple hues, the Oxford Landing Estates Merlot 2011 displays aromas of raspberry and red jubes with hints of fruit pastille and spice. Soft, velvety tannins are a feature of the palate, which starts with generous plums and raspberries and finishes with red berry fruit and spice flavors. The succulent fruit flavors linger long 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.
