Oxford Landing Merlot 2009
Merlot from South Australia, Australia
Raspberry and fruit pastille aromas with hints of lilac and spice. A succulent and rich fruit driven palate, starting with a compote of mixed red berries and finishing with subtle velvety tannins. Plums and jubey fruit flavors are a feature of this wine and linger on the palate well after the wine has been consumed.
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.

I could taste the raspberry and plum flavors. It was very smooth and dry but not too dry.23/23/2011My mom always told me...if you don't have something nice to say...Kay Moellenkamp - Pickerington, OH512/15/2010We love this wine and order it often. Very good and although its reality inexpensive, it will hold its glass to expensive wines.
