Winery Tasting Notes

Palate

The palate is fruit driven and long with a balanced crisp acid finish.

Food Matching

Excellent companion to Barramundi and spicy Asian cuisine.

Winemaking Notes

Each section of the vineyard is kept separate during hand harvesting. At the winery the fruit is de-stemmed and given a gentle crush to burst the berries. The finest quality free run juice is chilled to preserve the expression of the fruit, not filtered prior to ferment. Partial lees added back to juice for fermentation to add creamy texture and length. Racked off lees after four days and yeasted with a natural yeast. The wine is chilled in tanks post fermentation, the filtered prior to bottling.

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.
