Oxford Landing Shiraz 2010
Syrah/Shiraz from Australia
A deep purple red, the Oxford Landing Estates Shiraz 2010 has lifted aromas of violets, plum and anise with hints of jasmine. The palate is a succulent feast of rich red berry fruit flavours, florals, dark chocolate and liquorice. The wine is soft and silky on the palate and is balanced by gentle tannins and a long lingering finish. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Australian Wine Companion - "Light, bright purple-crimson; a light- to medium-bodied shiraz made for immediate consumption, with juicy raspberry/red berry fruits, and a sprinkle of tannins just for luck. Ever reliable, especially in a vintage as good as '10."
International Wine Cellar - "Bright ruby. Black raspberry, plum and oak on the nose, plus a smoky note of tar. Sweet, moderately intense flavors of plum, blackcurrant and mocha are complicated by smoky herbs. Bright acidity lifts the finish, which shows good clarity and modest persistence. "
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
