O'Leary Walker 'Dr's Cut' Reserve Riesling 2013 (Clare Valley, South Australia) "...lime, lemon, fennel..."
Two heart surgeons from Adelaide own the Doctors’ Vineyard in the Polish Hill River. From 41 year old Riesling plantings that produce a high perfume and minerality. Perfect Clare Valley Riesling in fact. O’Leary Walker are clever enough to have seen this potential early and kept the batches separate so they can release them as a single bottling in outstanding years. A bit more work was put into this wine than a standard Clare Riesling to add extra layers of flavour and texture. This is a young wine that has been crafted to age for the long term. Drink after 2023 with a seafood pie.
Two gentlemen with plenty of years experience making great wine. Since 2000 they have made a great name sourcing fruit from trusted vineyards that they know consistently produce great fruit and crafting enjoyable wines. The Riesling in particular are great value, offering the classic Clare style that will age very well.
"Pale straw in colour with a slight green tinge. Powerful purity of lime, lemon with hints of musk and fennel. A wine having "Bose" like purity and intensity, with many textured layers of complexity and a myriad of spice interwoven with fennel and citrus."
