95 Points - Jeni Port
O'Leary Walker represents the partnership between the experienced and highly regarded winemaking duo of David O'Leary and Nick Walker. Since the early 2000's they have been crafting an impressive range of wines from some of South Australia's best vineyard sites. O'Leary Walker's Clare Valley Rieslings are always a highlight and now considered among the finest Rieslings made in Australia.
A product of another fantastic vintage, the 2023 O'Leary Walker Watervale Riesling delivers a quintessential Clare Valley Riesling brimming with lime and lemon notes with subtle undertones of wild fennel spice and an electric acid line. A Riesling of incredible purity and balance, this will again prove hugely popular with the many fans of this wine.
"95 Points. Beautiful, arresting aromatics and a rare delicacy; you just know you are in Watervale territory when you set upon that aroma, those flavours. Scents of citrus blossom, lemon zest, lime sorbet and spring flowers with a touch of lantana bring not only a sense of place but grape variety. The ’23 vintage looks to be another excellent year, making it three in a row for Clare Riesling, joining the outstanding ’21 and ’22. Not quite as seamless as its ’23 sibling but give it time. This youngster is still very much working at getting it together. There’s a clean, brisk acidity that’s tart and green apple crunchy. It drives the wine bringing in its wake lime cordial, pink grapefruit, ginger spice, citrus zest and a cool slate, wet stone tang. So pure, so good.”- Jeni Port, winepilot.com.
