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

The 2005 GSM possesses herbal, peppery, red cherry, spice, and earthy notes, light tannin, and ripe, round fruit. Drink it over the next 12-18 months. This wine is an exceptional bargain.

Medium red. Red berry and chocolate on the nose, along with a faint whiff of cured meat. Juicy red berry flavors are gently lifted by soft acidity. Easygoing, pliant, fruit-driven wine with no apparent tannins; this is even better with a light chill.

From Australian producer Yalumba comes this affordable line of wines under the Oxford Landing label. The 2004 GSM (great stuff, mate) is a blast. Blackberry, blueberry, cherry and plum flavors are soft and juicy. Powerful and almost scary it's so good, the GSM (Godzilla, Sasquatch, Mothra) also offers spicy notes that give it, dare I say it, an almost EUROPEAN complexity. The GSM (goal-oriented strategic marketing) does not taste mass-produced, but it is priced that way. For six bucks I say "GSM" ("gimme some more").

My favorite red here is the 2004 GSM, a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Shiraz, and 10% Mourvedre. Savory, round, deep, peppery, raspberry, and cherry notes emerge from this tasty effort. It is an ideal bistro red to drink now and over the next 1-2 years.

Smooth, velvety, spicy and lively, with a peppery edge to the currant and pomegranate flavors, lingering nicely. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2010.

Bright, almost lurid red, like a gamay. Fresh aromas of blackberry, cherry and spicy white pepper. A supple, juicy, uncomplicated midweight with clean dark berry and spice flavors. Sweet, deeply fruity and supple on the finish.

Individual selected parcels of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre are fermented in static potters under warm temperature conditions. The Grenache parcels are also given post ferment maceration on skins to allow maximum color and flavor extraction. Careful blending of the final components results in a wine which showcases the special synergy that can be achieved with these three classic varieties.
