Situated in the picturesque Hall Valley, in the Murrumbidgee River corridor, just outside the ACT, the Nick O'Leary estate incorporates a modern winemaking facility and a mature five hectare vineyard. Since their beginnings, well over a decade ago, their focus has always been to make hand worked Shiraz and Riesling wines that truly exhibit the character of the region as well as expressing Nick's unique personality and style.
From a single block of the estate Heywood Vineyard, open-fermented with 30% whole bunches, the balance whole berries, 7 days cold soak, 14-day ferment plus some post-ferment maceration, matured in high quality French barriques (35% new) for 12 months. Great colour announces a special wine that ticks all the boxes: depth of dark berry fruits, spice, licorice and supple tannins. Bargain+++.
