Nick O'Leary

With more awards than we've had red wines, Canberra's golden child Nick O'Leary is exactly who comes to mind when we think of young Australian winemakers truly cementing a reputation beyond their years.

We could reel off accolade after accolade, each as impressive as the one before, but we think it'd make a lot more sense to simply state that Nick's small-parcel drops are the best you can get from the famed Canberra District; a Wine of the Year Shiraz being one of them (just the one award will do for now).

For the love of grape, indulge in a bottle of Nick O'Leary as soon as is humanly possible. It's as good as it gets.
