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.
