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.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the original and oldest planting at Oxford Landing with some vines in excess of 40 years old. These vines are believed to be some of the first planted in the region.
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.
Deep ruby purple with hints of crimson, this wine displays lifted Cabernet aromas of black currant, tobacco leaf and plums with suggestions of blackberries, cedar and violets. The palate is elegantly structured with layers of berry fruits, anise and fruit pastille. Shiraz adds a silky texture and sweetness to the mid palate whilst the
Cabernet provides structure and a soft tannin finish. Synergy and elegance.
