Oxford Landing Estates

Marty’s Block collection honours our vineyard manager Marty Burnell, who has carefully tended Oxford Landing Estates like it’s his own backyard for over 36 years.

Set on the banks of South Australia’s majestic Murray River, the Oxford Landing vineyard is named after a nearby site where drovers once grazed and watered sheep. 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.

  • 2016 Marty's Block Viognier

    Aromas of apricot nectar with jasmine and hints of cinnamon. Jasmine and quince combine with cinnamon and anise, leading into the peach cobbler palate. Silky tannins and a creamy lingering finish create a wine that is enjoyed long after it is consumed. Enjoy with dukka crusted yabbies with preserved lemon yoghurt, or garlic, ginger and sesame brown rice. Viognier is a favourite of Marty’s and he often uses the vine cuttings as lures for Murray Cod.

  • 2016 Marty's Block Chardonnay

    White peach, apple blossom and almond meal aromas, complemented with hints of toast, vanilla and shortbread. Full flavoured yet finely structured, the Chardonnay offers a unique expression of our vineyard. Layers of flavour are developed from the finest of clones, natural fermentation and minimal handling of the wine. A finish that is polished and befitting of the man himself, best enjoyed with the finest of crustaceans, the yabbie, or if you can’t find one, try lobster bisque.

    Pale straw green in colour. Aromas of fresh cut peach flesh with accents of wild honey and hints of lemon myrtle. These are supported by fig and cinnamon spice complexities from wild fermentation.

  • 2017 Pinot Grigio

    Pale straw in colour. A heady mixture of feijoa, apple skin and poached pear with hints of cinnamon and tea rose. Medium bodied with avours of poached pear and cinnamon. Soft and supple in a drinkable way, yet with enough weight and texture to match an array of dishes such as cured ocean trout with horseradish and avocado or warm salad of exotic mushroom, fennel and fried taro.

  • 2019 Sauvignon Blanc

    Pale straw in colour with a tinge of green. Fresh and zesty aromas of guava, passion fruit pith, pineapple and mango. The palate shows layers of fresh lemongrass and papaya flavours. Fine, crunchy acidity helps to focus the taste buds on the finish which is persistent and utterly delicious when paired with Sainte-Maure de Touraine (an un-pasteurised goats milk cheese, rolled in wood ash from France) or you could try it with mushroom and barley risotto.
