Oxford Landing Chardonnay 2021 (6 Bottles) Barossa Valley, Australia

by Negociants 0 orders



The Chardonnay for this wine is sourced from vineyards in South Australia, where our access to the latest clonal and rootstock combinations continues to deliver outstanding fruit. Our winemaking is focused on minimal intervention with the use of wild yeasts, malolactic fermentation, lees contact and subtle oak to give our Chardonnay depth, complexity and personality.

Excellent late winter and early spring rains replenished the Oxford Landing soil profiles. Mild weather at flowering allowed even fruit set resulting in full bunches. The weather leading up to and through harvest will be remembered for being dry and exceptionally mild. This has resulted in grapes that have retained freshness, acidity and wonderfully expressive Chardonnay flavours.

Pale straw yellow in colour. Aromas of ripe nectarine, fig and nougat with accents of wild honey. These are supported by freshly cut hay, cinnamon spice and apple pie. Layers of flavour build across the palate reflecting the fruit, natural fermentation and ageing on yeast lees. The slightest hint of oak comes through as cinnamon and spice. Balanced acidity gives the wine a refreshing finish. Enjoy with avocado pasta or steamed salmon and sugar snap peas served with rice, toasted sesame seeds and ponzu dressing.



About Oxford Landing Wines

It takes an amazing amount of vision to look at a patch of sunburnt red soil and imagine a vineyard bursting with fruit.
That’s exactly what the late Wyndham Hill-Smith did when he founded Oxford Landing in 1958.

Few things in life have the power to capture a sense of place and community like wine. As places go, Oxford Landing is something special. No wonder he was smitten. It’s a location you don’t forget (or leave) in a hurry. Just ask the locals. The gobsmacking River Murray winds its way through the rugged rural landscape, rippling with life and promise. A sense of community is the heart of the South Australian region and the river is the lifeblood that keeps it flowing.

Wyndham (or Wyndy as he was known to mates) was a winemaker for Yalumba and a visionary. He and production manager Norm Hanckel searched long and hard to find the perfect patch of land on which to plant a vineyard. United by a love of painting, they travelled the sunburnt land in Wyndy’s Buick, capturing what they saw; brushstroke by brushstroke. Oh, what a palette Mother Nature provided; vivid red soil, clear blue skies, multi-coloured native birds, towering gum trees, and sunlight dancing on the river.

Most of all, Wyndy was drawn to the rich soil, the drainage it provided, and the property’s proximity to water. The hand-planting of Oxford Landing Estate Vineyard (originally known as Yalumba River Estate) was a hands-on affair that provided residents of the nearby town of Waikerie with much-needed employment and a sense of pride that still exists today.
