2016 Nick O'Leary Shiraz

Canberra District, NSW

One of the standard bearers for Canberra District Shiraz over the last few years.



About The Wine

This has been the most successful wine for Nick over the past couple of vintages. For two years running it was named as the NSW Wine of the Year at the NSW Wine Industry Awards.

It's the first time that any wine has won the award in consecutive vintages, no mean feat. It's easy to see why this wine does so well.

It shows beautifully as a young red, full of volume and character. The 2016 produced a brighter style of Shiraz for Nick, with all the weight and beautiful texture that Canberra Shiraz is known for.

Unfortunately, due to small production and very high demand, there's not much to go around so get in quick if you would like to see what the fuss is about.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"From five vineyards in the Canberra District, 65% whole berries, 35% whole bunches, 7 days cold soak, open-fermented, part with extended post-ferment maceration, matured for 12 months in French oak (35% new). Good colour, clarity and depth; an attractive medium-bodied shiraz that starts ticking all the boxes from the first whiff and sip. The flavours are tilted towards plum and dark cherry, the mouthfeel provided by the freshness of moderate alcohol and supple tannins." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)
