Overview

Sourced from the sub-regions of Polish Hill River and Armagh, this Shiraz screams Clare Valley. Black olives, liquorice and spice fill the aroma, while the palate exhibits characteristic mocha, plum and blackberry fruits with great length of flavour.

Maturation in French oak hogsheads for 18 months has added to the richness and complexity of this beautifully balanced wine.

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.
