Winemaker's Notes:

A deep purple red, the Oxford Landing Estates Shiraz 2009 has lifted aromas of dark berry and plum fruit with hints of chocolate and anise. The palate is smooth and succulent with generous flavours of licorice, raspberry and allspice with hints of jasmine. Soft tannins and berry fruit persistence lead to a long, slightly savory 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.
