Winemaker's Notes:

A pale straw with a lime green hue, the Oxford Landing Estates Viognier 2012 has a lifted musk and honeysuckle aroma, with a hint of poached quince and mandarin peel. The wine is richly textured on the palate with classic Viognier minerality complemented perfectly with flavors of ripe peaches and apricots, grapefruit pith and lemon-grass. A delicate balance of unctuous generosity and tantalizing crispness.

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.
