Expert Reviews

As cheap as (labelled) Chardonnay gets, a great place to start when you're spending down. A bouquet of fresh necatrines and citrus blossom with a palate of peaches and melons. A clean finish with just enough citrus to keep it fresh. The best Oxford Landing Chardonnay yet, no question. Value Plus.Tyson Stelzer, Wine100 (SEP/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale golden straw with vibrant green hues.

Aroma

The 2010 Oxford Landing Chardonnay displays lifted aromas of fresh peaches, citrus and honeydew melon with an underlying hint of nougat and nutmeg and cinnamon spice.

Palate

The wine has an even texture and flavours of white stone fruit and fresh citrus. The fine creamy texture is a result of continual lees stirring after fermentation. The palate finishes crisply with a lingering tantalising acidity.

Winemaking Note

The distinctive chardonnay flavours we strive for in this wine were ripe at early Baume, with most of the fruit being picked between 11.5-12.5 Baume. Following harvest, 20% of the fruit was fermented using ‘wild yeast’. This bright, crisp flavour when melded together through extended lees contact has given the wine a seamless middle palate with no malo-lactic fermentation. In addition a small portion of reserve wine from French oak barrels was included. These flavours combine to contribute extra layers of complexity and texture and enhance the wine’s innate powerful fruit drive.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Oxford Landing Estates was established in 1958 on the banks of the mighty Murray River in South Australia amidst bountiful sunshine, vivid blue skies and plenty of red Riverland soil.

From planting vines to making wines, Oxford Landing Estates takes great pride in their people – some having spent their whole life on the Murray. They are part of a community who are unashamedly passionate about the vineyards, grapes and working together to ensure the wine going into the bottle is what they envisaged.

“Our group of dedicated vineyard staff live on-site and nearby. It’s their care and attention to detail that sets the basis for Oxford Landing Estates wine quality,” says Vineyard Manager Robert ‘Fred’ Strachan.
