Winemaker Notes

Pale straw with green hues, the Oxford Landing Viognier has aromas of lifted musk and honeysuckle followed on with hints of white flowers and stone fruit. The palate is richly textural with classic Viognier minerality complemented perfectly with ripe flavors of the late seasons peach and apricot.

A great wine for drinking now and with careful cellaring this wine will continue to exhibit these generous Viognier flavors and textures for at least 2-3 years.

Critical Acclaim

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Greenish gold. Varietally accurate aromas of peach, pear and orange, with a subtle floral quality. Light-bodied and juicy, with good lift to its pit and citrus fruit flavors, which are underscored by zesty minerality. Finishes clean and with a refreshingly bitter edge, repeating the orange note. As usual, this is a superb value.

Oxford Landing, , Australia
Oxford Landing
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.

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
