Oxford Landing takes a step up”

Pale straw with a light green hue, this fresh, lively Sauvignon Blanc shows classical varietal character with grassy, nettle-leaf, lemon and grapefruit aromas.

An abundance of flavors, complemented with refreshing natural and mineral acidity.
South Australia, a state of Australia, located in the south-central part of the country.
