- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Nick O'leary is one of the rising stars of the Canberra wine district. With over a decade's worth of experience in the industry, Nick is one of the 'must watch' winemakers of his generation. His specialties (as you might expect - coming from Canberra) are Shiraz and Riesling. His Riesling is renowned for it's _pure fruit, exceptional balance and moreish approachability_ as a young wine. The 2016 release is one of his best to date. Made in his low-tech winery on the southern escarpment of Lake George near Bungendore, as Mike Bennie once said, "Riesling sings in this lads hands."
What it Tastes Like
Bath salts, lemon rind, crystalised ginger. Sweet, honeysuckle, green apple and lime flavours but set to a firm, slatey backdrop. Quartz, a searing backbone of rapier like acid. Prodigious length. The fainest chalkiness to the finish. Awesome Riesling.
Riesling 2016 The 2016 Riesling is made from fruit selected from four Canberra District vineyards. Near perfect growing conditions produced ripe well balanced grapes. Whole bunch pressed and cool fermented it shows aromatics of white flowers, apple blossom and citrus. The palette is generous with a powerful mix of Granny Smith apple and freshly squeezed lime. The mouth-watering natural acidity leads to a pristine palate of balance and length.

Canberra. A mountain of potential. A sleeping giant of Australian wine. The ability of this region to produce world class wines in only a relatively short history is almost second to none in the whole country. We have some absolute geniuses to thank for developing this region. People have taken notice. Canberra wine is some serious gear. With the ability to produce everything from perfumed and tightly wound Syrah, to razor sharp Riesling and a bunch of emerging varieties in the ground excelling, Canberra will be one of the ‘must watch’ wine producing regions in Australia for many years to come.
Riesling is the king of white grapes. With unparalleled versatility, it rightfully carries the ‘Noble’ name tag. We make extraordinary Riesling in Australia, from far and wide. From the classic searing, razor-sharp styles in the Clare and Eden Valleys to the fragrant and enchanting wines of the Great Southern, Australian Riesling is a chameleon that can take on many forms. Sweet, steely, lean or textured, the world of Riesling is a thing of wonder that should be explored by all true lovers of wine.
