Overview

Fruit is sourced from two sub regions within the Clare Valley. The organically certified 'Doctor's block' is located in the polish Hill River Region, a superior cool climate vineyard which is dry grown and low yielding. The Armagh vineyard produces fruit from 50 year old dry grown vines.

The result is an elegantly perfumed wine, with a beautiful fruit concentration and fine grain tannins.

Expert Reviews

From the Armagh and Polish Hill River districts; matured in French oak. The colour isn't particularly auspicious, and there are no great surprises to be had with either the bouquet or palate; yes, you can tell it's cabernet, but it's not going to launch a 1000 ships. James Halliday, Rating 87, 27th July 2015

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep, rich ruby red with purple hues.

Aroma

Perfumed with blackcurrant cassis and a hint of cedar and spice from premium French oak.

Palate

The contrasting influences of the two sub regions produce a great synergy, with this comes a balanced elegant wine. It displays long fine grain tannins, giving it real texture and gorgeous chalkiness. The depth of rich berry fruit concentration and the length of natural acidity are generous and appealing.

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.
