WINE: 23 OCTOBER 2014

Oxford Landing 2013 Shiraz

Riverland SA | 13.5 per cent alcohol | $9

When it comes to buying ‘cheapies’ I’ve long regarded Oxford Landing — owned by the Hill Smith family of Yalumba fame — as one of the surest bets.

And there’s the bonus of contributing to what I believe is a genuine attempt to increase the sustainability of one of our greatest assets — the mighty Murray River.

Dark berryfruits, plums and cherries are all present in this straightforward quaffer which should only impinge of the conversation when the bottle’s empty and it’s time to consider ordering a second.
