Our family’s involvement with Olive Farm Wines dates back to 1933. Back in the early days, only fortified wines were made, as adding alcohol (fortifying) to the wine was the only known way to preserve the wine. Over the years, my family has built up a large stock of quality fortified wines that we use to blend in to our fortified range. Old fortified wines of such quality are very hard to find, and we are very proud of them. The Swan Valley has the perfect climate to produce fortified wines, so a taste of these is a must!!

    Stari is our latest release in our ever growing fortified range. My family’s (Yurisich) ownership of Olive Farm dates back to 1933 when Ivan Yurisich - my Stari Dide` (old grandfather in ‘Slav, pronounced dida), purchased the property after emigrating from Korcula, Yugoslavia. Stari Dide’s humble beginning started by making fortifieds, which has grown and developed over 4 generations of Yurisich winemakers. 

    The fortified wines made by my father, dide` and stari dide` have been blended with my own to create this unique and rare wine.  Over the years, our fortifieds have been made from Muscat, Verdelho, Tokay and Pedro, all of which have been used in this blend.

    There aren’t too many 4 generation wines available, so this one is definitely worth a taste!!

  • Pedro Xeminez + Oak Barrel image

    Pedro Xeminez + Oak Barrel

    Colour:  Amber with orange golden hues
    Nose: Sweet nose of lifted marmalade, ripe apricots, peaches and cream.
    Palate: Sweet and viscous, delicate yet vibrant maramalade and mandarin fruits linger in the mouth before a long, warm finish.
    Drink: Once the Pedro Xeminez is filled we recommend to leave for a good 12  months before tasting. Patience is the key with this little beauty.

    This wine was chosen for oak maturation for its incredibly intense fruit characteristics and vibrant youthfulness. Fresh and vibrant in its infancy, this wine will continue to improve in the oak barrel for many many years to come, gradually darkening in colour and developing intense toffee and molasses characters.

    Please note that this is an unfiltered barrel sample and may develop a slight sediment over time, which is normal for fortified wines.

    Kit contains 5LT of Pedro fortified, x1 American new oak barrel (5LT capacity) stand, bung, tap and set up instructions.
