O'Leary Walker Polish Hill River Riesling 2011 (Museum Re-Release)
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.

Riesling - so undervalued. This classic Clare Riesling from the Polish Hill River sub-district is mightily fine now, yet will easily reward the patient drinker over 10-20 years. Honeysuckle, lime aromatics, a nod toward the tropical fruit spectrum with some guava, and citrus in the form of lemon, and orange peel. In the mouth it offers a tart, concentrated, mineral body with a backbone of acid that provides focus and intensity. Delivering a short burst - a mini-explosion of flavour - before its fine line and length deliver chalky minerality through the finish. Price: $22.00 (on release in 2011); Rating: 93 Points; Stuart Robinson; Vinsomniac
