Oxford Landing Shiraz 2019 (6 Bottles) Barossa Valley, Australia

by Negociants 0 orders



Fermentation was carried out in a combination of static and rotary fermenters under warm temperature conditions for six to seven days. This creates balance between extracting the appropriate tannins for wine structure and retaining fruit flavour and aromatics.

A cooler winter with below average rainfall. Warm to hot summer days and dry weather coupled with controlled irrigation produced good canopies on our Shiraz. This was great for ripening and produced grapes with great flavour and concentration.

Dark purple in colour with red hues. Fresh plums and subtle vanilla mingle with hints of violet and floral aromas. The generous, silky palate shows blueberry and plum fruit flavours, complemented by soft, rounded tannins with hints of milk chocolate and warm spices. Bright fruit flavours linger during the long succulent finish.

A lightly spiced ragù or massaman vegetable curry would be a great accompaniment.



About Oxford Landing Wines

It takes an amazing amount of vision to look at a patch of sunburnt red soil and imagine a vineyard bursting with fruit.
That’s exactly what the late Wyndham Hill-Smith did when he founded Oxford Landing in 1958.

Few things in life have the power to capture a sense of place and community like wine. As places go, Oxford Landing is something special. No wonder he was smitten. It’s a location you don’t forget (or leave) in a hurry. Just ask the locals. The gobsmacking River Murray winds its way through the rugged rural landscape, rippling with life and promise. A sense of community is the heart of the South Australian region and the river is the lifeblood that keeps it flowing.

Wyndham (or Wyndy as he was known to mates) was a winemaker for Yalumba and a visionary. He and production manager Norm Hanckel searched long and hard to find the perfect patch of land on which to plant a vineyard. United by a love of painting, they travelled the sunburnt land in Wyndy’s Buick, capturing what they saw; brushstroke by brushstroke. Oh, what a palette Mother Nature provided; vivid red soil, clear blue skies, multi-coloured native birds, towering gum trees, and sunlight dancing on the river.

Most of all, Wyndy was drawn to the rich soil, the drainage it provided, and the property’s proximity to water. The hand-planting of Oxford Landing Estate Vineyard (originally known as Yalumba River Estate) was a hands-on affair that provided residents of the nearby town of Waikerie with much-needed employment and a sense of pride that still exists today.
