O'Leary Walker Shiraz 2013
The bouquet is dark blackberry spice, with hints of spice and red liquorice, the oak is all French which is subtle and gently enhances its layered characters. On the palate the fruit weight is powerful and long with grainy balanced tannin and acidity.
Made in 2 and 4 tonne fermenters and hand plunged during the primary Fermentation and post fermentation this wine was left on skins for 15 days to enhance tannin and maximise flavour and length.
The colour is an indicator to the power and concentration of this wine, which is again 70/30 Clare Valley McLaren Vale.
O’Leary Walker Wines is the culmination of two like minded winemakers that met at Roseworthy College twenty years ago. Established in 2001, David O’Leary and Nick Walker combine a wealth of experience gained during their time as corporate winemakers behind such labels as Krondorf, Hardy’s, Yellowglen and Annie’s Lane.
Matching the best fruit from the best viticultural districts is the thumb print for producing the best varietal wines, and is the philosophy behind O’Leary Walker. Based at Watervale in the Clare Valley, South Australia, O’Leary Walker Wines is a new winery on the scene, rapidly gaining a reputation for producing great regional wines at affordable prices.
