Overview

At Hollick we try to stay ahead of the pack by producing some interesting other varieties, and since visiting Spain we have had a penchant for many things Spanish. Tempranillo originated in Northern Spain and takes its name from the Spanish word for a little early.

This lighter bodied wine displays fine, supple tannins with a complex palate of bramble, blackberry and dark cherry fruit flavours. Adding interest are the varietal flavours of herbs, blasamic, spice and cold tea.

Expert Reviews

Good colour introduces a tempranillo with attitude and conviction; black cherry and dark berry fruits on the palate have a typical flavour twist on the finish, a ghost of citrus/citrus peel; the tannin structure is exemplary. Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

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.
