Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973.

O'Leary Walker is the culmination of two like minded identities who were fated by destiny to make wine together. After working with large companies for many years, the Messrs David O'Leary and Nick Walker amassed over three hundred gold medals and sixty trophies, including the highly coveted Jimmy Watson. Shiraz is treated to a small batch vinification through the action of natural yeasts, hand plunged in a mix of two and four tonnes fermenters for twelve days. Batches remain on skins for a fortnight to enhance tannin complexity, maximising flavour and length, pressed and racked into a combination of seasoned and new French oak barrels for an extended term of maturation.
Deep red with purple hues. Virulent and complex on the nose, savoury elements of ground pepper and olive combine with sweeter characters of dark blackberrry, red liquorice and spice. The oak is all French, subtle and integrated, gently enhancing the layers of fruit. A palate that's concentrated and powerful, persistent and long, juicy tannins and balanced acidity.
