This fun little pocket rocket from Oxford Landing is not only great value, but is highly quaffable! Lots of typical apples and pears rise from the glass, whilst the palate is crisp and slightly creamy, quite dry with a bright, thirst-quenching finish. No need to naval gaze about this wine, just chill and enjoy.
At Oxford Landing, we like to ‘keep it real’. That
means maintaining a sense of perspective and
recognising what really matters. Remembering
where we came from and being proud of our
roots. And making wines that are a true reflection
of the place they come from.
Set on the banks of South Australia’s majestic
Murray River, the Oxford Landing vineyard is
named after a nearby site where an old paddle
steamer called ‘The City of Oxford’ met with an
untimely end. Drovers once grazed and watered
sheep here but today it’s home to a loyal flock of
down-to-earth folk who take great pride in making
quality wines, enjoyed the world over.
Pale straw in colour, the 2015 Pinot Grigio features a heady mix of aromas such as nashi pear, honey dew melon, peach blossom and rose water. The palate is medium bodied, round and succulent with flavours of oat meal, cinnamon and nashi pear crunch. The finish is textured and silky, which is the hallmark of this classic variety.
