Magenta with brilliant purple hues, the Oxford Landing Estates Merlot 2010 displays aromas of lilac and fruit pastilles with hints of raspberry liquorice and anise. Subtle velvety tannins are a feature of the palate, which starts with generous plums and raspberries and finishes with rich jube-like fruits and black cherries. The succulent fruit flavours linger long after the wine has been consumed.
Oxford Landing Fact
We individualise our Merlot blocks as determined by the root stocks to maximise their flavour variation and complexity. Different root stocks will reach flavour heights at different times over three or more weeks during ripening. This diversity adds to the complexity and depth in the final wine.
