In 1958, South Australian entrepreneur and winemaking visionary Wyndham Hill Smith took a spade and sank it into the riverside dirt. He believed this place of fertile red soil and bountiful sunshine would be ideal for growing premium grape varieties and Oxford Landing Estates was born.
By using small vineyard techniques such as detailed pruning, canopy management and crop thinning, Oxford Landing Estates can express the individuality of each of their 130 five-acre blocks. This small-scale approach continues with methods usually reserved for boutique winemaking, so the wines are handled gently yet quickly.
As part of the estates’ commitment to minimal intervention winemaking, they have moved away from fining any of their wines. By using cross-flow filtration, Oxford Landing can ensure the wines are a pure expression of the region and that the entire collection is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Notes: A fresh and elegant wine with a touch of acid. It has clean, intense and crisp scent of blackberries and cherries. Succulent and rich with soft berry fruit on the finish.
