This soft, silky Merlot is a generous wine, brimming with the sweetness of cherries and plums.

Oxford Landing is family owned and is committed to making varietal wines that are great value for money. This juicy Merlot has soft tannin with a hint of vanillin oak.

Wyndham Hill Smith found Oxford Landing in 1958 on the banks of the River Murray, South Australia. The winery has matured into one of Australia's most innovative viticultural estates, delivering flavours that reflects the unique vineyard terroir. Oxford Landing vineyard near the South Australian town of Waikerie is an idyllic place, distinguished by clear blue skies, rich red soil and sunshine – the perfect environment for growing grapes. The grapes are from select fruit parcels on the Oxford Landing block. Warm fermentation allows the best extraction of fruit flavours and tannins for this style of wine. This is a bright and friendly wine that is also very affordable...light to medium bodied, with vibrant raspberry fruit flavours, nice, fresh acidity and soft tannins.." Toni Paterson MW, December 2007.

Vinification Details

Oxford Landing Estates Merlot is grown on the banks of the Murray River on a range of red sandy soils over limestone. The vines have been strategically planted on well drained sites to produce vines with low yields. The aroma shows raspberry and berry fruit followed by hints of spice. Soft, velvety tannins on the palate with generous plums and raspberries. Try with poultry, red meat, pork or pasta.

History

In the late 1800s the Murray River was a thriving trade highway with commercial paddle steamers transporting wheat, wool and household supplies. One such paddle steamer met with an untimely end when a fire reduced it to ashes. Among the wreckage was a singed sign carrying the name of the boat ‘The City of Oxford’. Then on, the area was known as Oxford Landing. In 1958, winemaking visionary Wyndham Hill Smith sank a spade into the riverside dirt. He believed this fertile red soil and bountiful sunshine would be ideal for growing premium grape varieties, and Oxford Landing Estates was born.
