Winemaker's Notes:

The Oxford Landing Vineyard was established in 1958 on the banks of the majestic Murray River in South Australia. It's an idyllic place, distinguished by clear blue skies, rich red soil and is abundant in golden sunshine – the perfect environment for growing grapes with vibrant, fruity flavors.

Oxford Landing Viognier 2006 is pale gold in colour with green hues. The aroma is intense musk and white flowers with hints of stone fruit. The palate is rich, very long and ripe, with stone fruit and musk flavours. This wine exhibits fresh, silky and lively Viognier textures.

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.
