  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • A single vineyard wine sourced from the Fischer vineyard. Grapes were hand harvested at 13 Baume and processed into 1.5tonne open fermenters with 45% whole-bunches, balance whole berries. Matured in 35% new French barriques (Troncais forrest) balance in seasoned French barriques for 10 months. Bottled in March 2018.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Complex aromas of white pepper, fennel seed and freshly cut red fruits. The alluring sweetness reveals itself fully albeit integrated with the wines, spicy, savoury character and beautiful tight but silky tannins.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Situated in the picturesque Hall Valley, in the Murrumbidgee River corridor, just outside the ACT, the Nick O'Leary estate incorporates a modern winemaking facility and a mature five hectare vineyard. Since their beginnings, well over a decade ago, their focus has always been to make hand worked Shiraz and Riesling wines that truly exhibit the character of the region as well as expressing Nick's unique personality and style. His wines have received high profile recognition at a national and international level including the prestigious Stodart Trophy in 2014 and the NSW Wine of the Year in both 2014 and 2015 – the latter being the first and only time in the awards 20-year history that the accolade has been received multiple times by a single producer, let alone in consecutive years.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    From a single vineyard in the Canberra District, 70% whole berries, 30% whole bunches, 5 days cold soak, open-fermented, some parcels with extended post-ferment maceration, matured for 10 months in French, (25% new). Has a lot in common with its cheaper sibling, except that all the bouquet and flavour inputs are scaled up. The fruit is in the blackberry and blood plum quarter, and both intensity and length are significantly increased, the impact quality of the oak more evident, although still in impeccable balance.
