Food Pairings for Hollick Tempranillo Wrattonbully
The Hollick winery, cellar door and restaurant complex is established on "Neilson's Block", one of the original John Riddoch Coonawarra selections in the cool South East corner of South Australia. With a vision of a great future for Coonawarra, Ian Hollick purchased 22 hectares of prime terra rossa land in 1974. Driven by quality and a hands-on approach, Hollick wines are made from three core vineyards. Neilson's Block, planted by Ian and Wendy in 1975, the nearby Wilgha vineyard, purchased in 1987 and the Red Ridge vineyard developed in 1998 at Wrattonbully, giving Hollick over 200 acres of vineyard in total.2007 saw Hollick celebrate their 25th Anniversary. Coonawarra soil is the classic Terra Rossa over limestone, providing excellent drainage and the right balance of nutrients, the ideal medium for vine growth and production of high quality fruit.The climate of Coonawarra is markedly influenced by proximity to the coast, creating morning cloud over, which has a profound effect on sunshine hours and hence, fruit development. This moderating effect provides optimum conditions for ripening - long and slow - allowing maximum flavour accumulation and development of fine tannins. This 'Tempranillo' displays a bright and glossy plum red colour. It has juicy dark plum and cherry aromas with a dusting of herbs and some orange rind elements. This medium-bodied wine shows a fine, supple tannin structure and a relatively savoury palate with sour cherry fruit flavours to the fore. Easy to drink, why not partner it with a selection of tapas, or a simple Chorizo and white bean stew.
