Neil and Heather Grace's vineyard has classic Watervale soils, red loam over limestone, with a westerly aspect. Grace's "dry-Grown" vineyard is hand-pruned and hand-picked and relies only on the natural rainfall. The limestone is able to retain moisture and assist the vine throughout periods of warm weather, almost drought-proofing in the summer months. Viticultural practices include vertical shoot positioning which not only encourages even ripening but also provides important shade to prevent the negative impact of sun-burn on the resultant wine.

Winery Tasting Notes


Pale straw in colour with a slight green tinge.


Delicate lime and citrus notes. Restrained with hints of lemon and fennel.


Very fine with great length of acid. Purity of fruit with lime and crisp finish.

Food Matching

A perfect accompaniment to freshly shucked Coffin Bay oysters and Atlantic Salmon or King George Whiting.

Cellaring Potential

Vibrant and flavoursome with zesty acid; this will soften with time. Enjoy now, or benefit from careful cellaring for 10+ years. The crisp characters of the 2012 Watervale Riesling are the result of a standout vintage, on par with 2002.

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.
