Oxford Landing Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Cabernet Sauvignon from South Australia, Australia
Lifted plums, blackberries and mint leaves dominate the aroma with hints of cedar, blackcurrants and violets. Dark berry fruits, fruit pastille flavours and savoury spices persist on the palate, giving the wine a succulent and long palate, complemented by the lingering Cabernet tannins on the finish.
International Wine Cellar - "Bright ruby-red. Spicy red berries and cherry on the nose and in the mouth. Light-bodied, slightly bitter redcurrant and cherry flavors show good clarity and modest concentration. A touch of licorice comes up with air and carries through the dry, taut finish. Pretty grown-up in style for the price. "
Oxford Landing Winery
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. View all Oxford Landing Wines

About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
