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!!

  • 2009 Cane Cut Semillon image

    2009 Cane Cut Semillon

    Colour:  Golden straw.

    Nose:  Sweet lemon, lime and tropical fruits.

    Palate:  Delicate sweetness  with a crisp finish.

    Drink:  Chilled, perfect now and for 10 years.

    The Cane Cut Semillon is the newest edition to the OFW wine list. The Semillon vine canes are cut prior to picking, intensifying the natural sugars, flavours and acid, producing a sweet yet delicate, honeyed style of wine. This wine would match perfectly with Cheese's such as cheddars and  light blue Cheese accompanied with fresh fruit.

    Released for the first time at the end of 2008, this sweet and luscious Muscadelle wine sits comfortably in the range between our dessert and fortified styles. Deliciously at its best as an aperitif over crushed ice, this wine will also complement many of your favourite desserts.

    Drink:    Room temperature 15-18°C

    The 2010 Temp VP is a' vintage port' style using the grape variety of Tempranillo. The tannins in this wine are prominent at the moment however as this wine is a vintage port style it ages well in the bottle. If unopened and cellared correctly this wine will last as long as you allow it to, easily 20 years plus.

  • Tawny image

    Colour:  Brown /tawney hue

    Nose:    Nutty 'rancio'

    Palate:  Rich yet delicate with a fresh clean finish

    Drink:    Room temperature 15-18°C

    Our Tawny has been blended from wines made from Grenache, Shiraz and Tokay grapes. Unlike the vintage style (that is bottled straight away), these wines spend their entire lifetime in old oak barrels, where they develop their characters. The tawny was bottled in 2008 with an average age of 14 years.

    Drink:    Room temperature 15-18°C

    Our Liqueur Muscat has been made from fully ripened Swan Valley Muscat grapes and aged for many years at our cellars in South Guildford. This wine is like liquid gold. The flavour keeps building as the wine moves through your mouth and leaves you with a lingering flavour you won’t forget. This is another one of those wines to enjoy with your favourite piece of cheese, this year, next year, the year after that.....

    Palate:  The wine is extremely sweet and thick, with an abundance of sweet red fruit

    Drink:    Room temperature 15-18°C

    This Liqueur Shiraz is a very unique wine. It has been made from some extremely ripe Shiraz grapes grown in the Swan Valley. The wine speaks for itself. This Liqueur Shiraz is an amazing wine that tastes great as a young fortified. I’m looking forward to trying a bottle in about 25 years time because this wine is going to get better and better every year of its life.

    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!!
