WINE OF THE WEEK

O'Leary Walker Pol­ish Hill River Ries­ling 2014

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Wine -

For decades, and un­til re­cently, Aus­tralia's great­est Ries­lings have come from South Aus­tralia's Eden Val­ley and Clare Val­ley.

More re­cently, WA’s Great South­ern and Tas­ma­nia ap­pear to be gain­ing the lion's share of the ac­co­lades but, de­spite this trend, Aus­tralia’s finest ries­ling pro­ducer re­mains the Clare Val­ley’s metic­u­lous Ge­off Gros­set.

Just down the road, Nick Walker and David O’Leary con­sis­tently pro­duce some of Aus- tralia's great­est value and de­li­cious pre­mium Ries­lings.

Terms such as fra­grance, sher­bet, lime, per­fume, zest and steely acid­ity ap­ply - along with se­ri­ous qual­ity length - and danc­ing, swirling crowd-pleas­ing and ex­cit­ing aro­mat­ics. A stun­ner. 18.3 pts, $25.
