Crimson with brilliant purple hues, the Oxford Landing Estates Merlot 2011 displays aromas of raspberry and red jubes with hints of fruit pastille and spice. Soft, velvety tannins are a feature of the palate, which starts with generous plums and raspberries and finishes with red berry fruit and spice flavours. 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.
