For over 100 years, the famous Great Eastern Steeplechase at the Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival, has had the punters cheering on. Named after such a merry event, how could the O’Leary Walker Great Eastern Sparkling Shiraz NV from the Adelaide Hills be anything other than fun and festive?
A rich and powerful wine, the bouquet is bursting with red fruits, raspberry liquorice and dark chocolate. An elegant palate of juicy plum, mocha oak, fine grained tannins and bursting with tiny bubbles.
After two years maturing in five year old French oak barriques, and a further two years on tirage (yeast lees in individual bottles), this wine has developed a beautiful complexity. Nothing says ‘celebration’ more than the O’Leary Walker Great Eastern Sparkling Shiraz NV.
A fantastic accompaniment to a charcuterie board, enjoy now - or if you can resist the temptation, cellar until 2027.
The average price per bottle is only available in a case of 6.
