Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most 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%.

Winemaker's Notes

Bright plum with magenta hues, the 2008 Oxford Landing GSM has lifted forest berry fruits with hints of liquorice and spice. Plum and dark fruit from the Shiraz are complemented by the raspberries, red cherries and spice from the Grenache, creating a rich compote of flavors on the palate. These flavors are balanced on the palate by the chalky Mourvedre tannins that provide a slightly savory finish that lingers long after the wine is consumed.

Critical Acclaim

"Bright ruby. Raspberry and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of anise and rose. Shows an array of red fruit qualities on the palate, accented by a hint of bitter chocolate. Finishes with a light touch and good bite. This blend of grenache, shiraz and mourvedre offers impressive balance and delicacy for the money. "

this is absolutely the smoothest $8 wine that I have found. Great for daily consumption.

Style: Smooth & Supple
For the price, this wine delivers. Drinks like Pinot Noir. Smooth, supple with round tannins and little bite. The nose is just fine. This wine is something different. I enjoyed it.

Not a fan - bitter and thoroughly dry. Not for my beginner's palate.

Learn About Oxford Landing Map ItMap It

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.

Home to the red wine regions of McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley, South Australia produces some of the finest red wines of the country, and some say in the world.
