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.
From the two estate vineyards, one in the warmer Armagh district, the other in the cooler Polish Hill River. Fermented with some whole bunches, 27 days on skins, matured for 2 years in French oak (25% new). Good colour opens the batting, balance, length and oak all aplenty, all in balance. Drink to: 2042; Price: $30.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; Wine Companion
This is a rich and boundlessly fruity shiraz that has aromas of raspberries, blackberries and red-plum compote, leading to a beautifully silky palate that offers a wealth of rich, attractive plums and blackberries. Very approachable already. Drink now. Screw cap. Rating: 93 Points; James Suckling
