Nick O’Leary Canberra District Riesling 2019

$28.00

Nick O’Leary makes great Riesling. Slate/mineral, taut, clean and citric but with a grapey/fleshy middle palate that takes some of the crunch out of the wine. With time open and a warmer temperature more tropical and floral characters are to be found. Seared prawns are the order of the day here.

Outstanding vineyards on the south escarpment of Lake George, producer small parcels of fruit. These parcels become stunning wines. Most of the wines come from the Canberra District but exceptionally good fruit from other regions are fair game too. Nick O’Leary was a finalist in the 2011 Gourmet Traveller Young Winemaker of the Year and since then has continued his path of excellence.

Canberra District

Although there is heritage back to 1840s the region really started in the 1970s with experimental blocks being planted. The climate is cool and the elevation is between 300 and 800. Riesling and Shiraz are standout varieties with site determining what other varieties excel.

Riesling

One of the world’s most noble varieties and known transmitter of terroir. Riesling is an important variety for quality wine production although only makes up approximately 4% of the planted area. Wonderful wines are found in Germany, Austria, Alsace and Australia. They can be as dry as any wine you’ll taste or super sweet and luscious. It is a wonderful grape. See more about Riesling here.
