Hollick the Bard Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The Bard range from Hollick celebrates the work of Australia’s best known lyric poet, John Shaw Neilson, who was raised in the cottage on the Hollick Neilson’s Block vineyard. Revered by his peers in the world of literature, Neilson was born in Penola in 1872, and it is thought that much of the imagery in his poetry was conjured up during his childhood experiences in the swampy bushland around Coonawarra. Deep garnet in colour, this wine's richness is matched in its pronounced nose of mulberry and blackberry with some restrained oak spice. Berries, cherries, plums and blackcurrant feature on thos juicy and full-bodied palate. Well balanced acid and tannins result in a rounded wine with a lasting, elegant finish. This wine cries out to be seved with food, especially roast lamb with rosemary and roasted Mediterannean vegetables.

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. 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. Eighty percent is planted to red varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot. The balance of the vineyards are planted to the white varieties of Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. A historic cottage, which was restored by Ian and Wendy in 1983 is a feature of the entrance to the winery. Heritage listed and built in 1860, it was the birthplace of famous lyric poet John Shaw Neilson and was the original cellar door. Read less
