Winery Tasting Notes
The bouquet is complex with dark fruits, hints of cassis and violets enhanced with gentle vanilla oak.
The palate is flavoursome, with balanced length, good acid structure and fine long tannins.
The fruit was fermented in small 2 and 4 tone open fermenters and was hand plunged during primary fermentation to maximise colour and flavour.
In the late 1890's the Blue Cutting Road was hand dug by Polish settlers whilst waiting for gainful employment. Blue Cutting Road is situated in the area known today as the Polish Hill River region of the Clare Valley. Not only does this road remain a usable summer bush track connecting two main roads, it dissects the two vineyards that provide valuable, flavoursome fruit for a range of O'Leary walker wines. Much of the settlers' influences have filtered throughout the beautiful Clare Valley and many of the fruits of their labours are still evident today. We pay homage to their enduring qualities with this wine.
