Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep, dark red with purple hues

Aroma

Perfume with blackcurrant, cassis and juicy berry fruits. Hint of cedar and spice

Palate

The contrasting influences of the two sub regions produce a great synergy. Fine tannin and acid structure give great depth and length with powerful fruit of blueberry and violets. This wine displays real Cabernet character, which is a style the Clare Valley has done well for many years. ***** Cassis and blueberry fruits, the palate is rich and powerful. Acidity and fine grain tannin balance the wine with French oak and juicy length.

Food Matching

A friendly wine, try with aged beef, spicy dishes or a hot curry

Cellaring Potential

Good depth of fruit indicates the wine will benefit from careful cellaring for 8 - 10 years

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

David O'Leary and Nick Walker both have a love of winemaking, a desire to create something exceptional and a strong affinity with the Australian wine industry.

After working for large companies for twenty years and amassing over 300 gold medals and 60 trophies(including a Jimmy Watson and twice International Red Wine Maker of the Year), David and Nick had achieved just about everything that a winemaker could.

A new challenge beckoned and David and Nick's belief in their winemaking skills and their confidence in the fruit and the vineyards available to them was the catalyst for them to establish their own venture based in South Australia's picturesque Clare Valley.

As with all things in life, a window of opportunity opens only a few times and they believed it was their turn to step up, have a go and return to what winemaking is all about, making great wine from great vineyard sites.

O'Leary Walker Wines was born.
