Overview

Fruit is sourced from two sub regions with in 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 sandy loam soils are made up of sand, silt and clay which support the root structure of the vine and influences the drainage levels and the amount of minerals and nutrients that the vine is exposed to in turn producing good quality fruit.The youthfulness of this wine shows great elegance and restraint. Over time it will develop powerful violets, and beautiful ‘classic’ cabernet richness. This wine will continue to improve over the next six to seven 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.
