Established in 1958 by Wyndam Hill Smith, the vineyard is situated on the banks of the Murray River in South Australia. Clear blue skies, rich red soil and an abundance of golden sunshine are hallmarks of this wine region. The vineyard was named Oxford Landing after a nearby site where drovers once grazed and watered sheep on the long journey to Adelaide from northern pastoral properties. Careful grape growing and winemaking efforts result in a collection of wines that capture and retain the natural, vibrant flavors and splendour of the Oxford Landing Vineyard. The vibrant flavors for Oxford Landing wines start with the sustainable management of the family’s 650 acre vineyard. The team is dedicated to responsible care and conservation of the entire vineyard eco-system. The Oxford Landing vineyard is managed and nurtured as 130 separate 5-acre blocks. The care and attention that occurs in the vineyard and focuses on individual block conditions allows the vineyard team to use many ‘small vineyard’ techniques that are more common in a boutique winery, such as detailed pruning, canopy manipulation and shoot thining. This enables the creation of micro-climates within the blocks suited to each of the different grape varieties needs. The Oxford Landing team has also embarked on an extensive land rejuvenation program on a 1,400-acre adjacent lot; over 50 acres of native trees have been planted to date, and natural vegetation, including a ‘seed orchard’, are in the works for the rest of the acreage. The Oxford Landing Winery, situated in the Barossa, was purpose built with a keen eye on sustainable winemaking. Any excess water is treated so it can be recycled and reused, while solid wastes become mulch and compost for the vines. Read less

Pale gold with vibrant green hues, the 2008 Oxford Landing Chardonnay has lifted aromas of fresh peaches, citrus and honeydew melons with an underlying hint of nougat and nutmeg spice. The wine had an even textured palate with stone fruit, green tropical and citrus flavours. The fine, creamy texture, is a result of extended lees contact after fermentation, and is balanced off by a refreshing acidity and lingering citrus peel flavours on the finish.
