Oxford Landing Gsm 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

"Deep plum in colour with hints of magenta, this wine shows bright fruit aromas of fragrant raspberries and plums, a hint of white pepper, and a dash of nutmeg and allspice. The palate is generous and fruit driven with layers of cherries, red berries and spice from the Grenache. Fuller plum and dark fruit flavours from the Shiraz provide flesh and weight in the mid palate with the fine, soft tannins providing structure and a slightly savoury finish. "

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
