O'Leary Walker Wines was established in 2000 by winemakers David O'Leary and Nick Walker. With over twenty five years experience and established reputations making premium wine with the big companies, these two long time friends decided to take control of their own destiny and craft small batches of wine from some of the best vineyard sites in South Australia. With a great leap of faith they are now doing exactly what they set out to.  

Pale lemon with green tints. Aromas of fresh lime, white florals, wet slate, bath salts and perfume. The palate has wonderful purity and length, driving acid spine, minerality and a creamy texture from an extended time on yeast lees.

No surprises to see Doctor’s Cut – a Riesling only made, according to the maker, in “exceptional” years – coming from the superlative 2022 vintage in the Clare Valley. It’s the vintage that keeps on giving some truly memorable wines, Rieslings in particular. Fruit for the Doctor’s Cut comes off an organic vineyard in the Polish Hill River sub-region owned by two Adelaide heart surgeons. In its just-bottled youth, it’s a quiet starter that values some air time. This won’t last long, but right now it allows the wine to open and expand. You’ll want to experience what follows. Polish River’s noted spice and intense fragrance immediately come into frame with apple blossom, spring flowers, citrus peel, green apple and lemongrass – a heady start. Tangy citrussy acidity rules and brings incredible energy to this wine. It will also see it on a long journey into the future. To taste, tart grapefruit pith chimes in with quince, citrus, apple and a layer of enduring spice and lemongrass in tandem with fine crystalline minerality. This is what Polish Hill River does best, it brings its signature tension, minerality and spice to Clare rResling and it’s all the better for it. Stunning.
