Deep, dark berry fruit and lifted floral notes with a negligible viognier presence – just a whiff of added sweetness. It’s a lovely aromatic entry; inviting and heady. The palate delivers bright wild berry fruit vibrancy from a quick maceration, there is satiny texture and a very long, jubey finish. Between go and whoa is a prickle of stem influence, stoney minerality and a little exotic funk. Medium weight, layered structure, will evolve wonderfully. Cool wine. 93+ Points, Drink: 2011-2018+' Mike Bennie, Winefront August 2011

Expert Reviews

Woah! Very serious and sexy nose. Lovely bright violets, earth, edgy stalkiness and red cherries. Exceptionally well integrated Viognier in this - no apricots to be seen. Mid weight, slightly warm palate with redcurrant fruit and brisk tannins. Really rather pretty but still properly savoury and dry, this is pure gold medal gear. 94 Points, Australian Wine Review, August 2011

Winery Tasting Notes

Nick O'Leary is one of a tight pack of young Canberra District winemakers that have pushed the region into the national spotlight. O'Leary's rieslings are terrific and he's buddied up with Alex McKay to create the value-for-money Bourke Street Wines brand, but you can't get better value than his 2010 Shiraz.

It's highly fragrant - violets, white pepper, raspberry and clove. Medium weight and fine, the palate brims with genuine cool-climate shiraz flavours, savoury spices, fine tannins and refreshing acidity. A gracious beauty. Peter Bourne, Gourmet Traveller WINE, December 2010
