Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw in colour with lime green tinges. Lifted capsicum, cut grass and lemon aromas form a pungent nose, which is unmistakably Sauvignon Blanc. A crisp and lively palate with excellent sugar and acid balance and zesty Sauvignon Blanc fruit flavours. The palate has weight and flesh resulting from extended masceration on skins and a clean flavoursome finish.

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.
