Winemaker's Notes:

A pale straw with a vibrant light green hue, the Oxford Landing Estates Sauvignon Blanc 2011 has lifted aromas of gooseberry and fresh cut pineapple with herbaceous nettle notes. The palate displays a lively citrus clarity and bright tropical notes and allure of passionfruit. The light to medium palate density, harmoniously balanced with the clarity and tingling natural acidity, leaves a refreshing, crisp finish. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

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.
