DESCRIPTION
  • O'Leary Walker Wines was established in 2000 by winemakers David O'Leary and Nick Walker. With over twenty five years experience and established reputations making premium wine with the big companies, these two long time friends decided to take control of their own destiny and craft small batches of wine from some of the best vineyard sites in South Australia. With a great leap of faith they are now doing exactly what they set out to.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Fruit is harvested in the cool of the night. All batches are kept separately in stainless steel tanks. The fruit is de-stemmed and crushed then gently pressed, resulting in a fine free-run cut and a pressings component. These are handled separately. The free-run juice is chilled to preserve the vineyard expression and purity of fruit. Once the juice has settled, it is racked off solids and seeded with yeast. A cool, temperature controlled fermentation is carried out over 10-14 days. The wine is chilled to 5°C and filtered prior to bottling.

    TASTING NOTES

    Delicately perfumed with Clare Valley bath powder and a hint of musk sticks. Powerful florals, riverstone minerality and fine natural acid. 

  • REVIEWS

    'Combines finesse with power, varietal fruit with elegance - this is Polish Hill River calling the tune with that edge of clarity that takes it out of the ruck.'
    95 Points - James Halliday

    'Tremendously fragrant, lifted aromatics, spicy, almost confectionery-like, with hints of peppermint. Very good intensity on the palate. It's dry and tangy, crisp and lively - lemons and limes. Tight, refined, intense, very dry and long.'
    93 Points - Huon Hooke

    'Good intensity, and quite a bit of pith and rind to it’s make up. Lemon/lime, a powdery texture, lime rind and juice, a firm finish of fine length, with a bit of pucker. Really like this. It has an extra dimension of interest.'
