Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw with green hues, the Oxford Landing Viognier has aromas of lifted musk and honeysuckle followed on with hints of white flowers and stone fruit. The palate is richly textural with classic Viognier minerality complemented perfectly with ripe flavors of the late seasons peach and apricot.

A great wine for drinking now and with careful cellaring this wine will continue to exhibit these generous Viognier flavors and textures for at least 2-3 years.

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.
