Oxford Landing Merlot 2001
Merlot from Australia
Deep Crimson in color and laden with rich fruit flavor and warmth, this exuberant young wine invites immediate drinking. A medium-bodied dry red, it also has the backbone to enable it to improve with up to three years cellaring. The wines supple tannins are matched with leathery, spicy characters interwoven with the ripe berry fruit and a hint of American oak.
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.Like 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.
