This wine is a classic Coonawarra style, showing bright crimson colour with rich berry and cassis aromas and flavours over soft tannins.

Expert Reviews

A 90/10% blend that finished its fermentation in French and American oak. The colour is good, the bouquet with blackcurrant and redcurrant, the medium-bodied palate introducing savoury, spicy nuances. Has good mouthfeel and length, with firm, earthy tannins on the finish.

Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (Aug/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Variety

90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot


Medium intensity ruby, with a vibrant purple hue.


Typical Coonawarra characteristics of blackcurrant, mint and dark berry fruit with underlying aromas of violets, spice and anise.


Ripe dark berry fruit with plums, must and hints of black olive and tobacco. The firm yet supple tannin profile combines with the elegantly and well balanced palate to produce a long and satisfying finish.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

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.
