Winemaker's Notes:

While some people say, "any port in a storm", we strongly suggest ours. Montevina Terra d'Oro Zinfandel Port displays aromas of raisined berry fruit, sugared dates, chocolate, caramel and orange peel. The wine's rich, lush, grapy flavors also evoke raisin, cocoa, coffee and toffee. This delicious, fortified wine is perfect onits own or as an accompaniment to chocolate, chocolate, chocolate...don't like chocolate? Try it with Stilton cheese and toasted walnuts.

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.

About Oxford Landing:

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.
