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.
Oh my. This is fabulous. It sparkles in the glass and lights up the palate. It's heady, with the right amount of flinty, smoky sulphides and lovely citrus flavours – grapefruit and lemon, zest and pith. There's tension across the palate, mainly an interplay between toasty oak and creamy lees flavours and acidity. It's tight and will continue to unfurl beautifully over the next few years.
