Overview

It is said that the gloriously sweet, concentrated wines that result from grapes infected by Noble Rot Botrytis Cinerea) are indeed ‘The Nectar of the gods’. The first botrytised wine made by Hollick was from the 1985 vintage and the team has developed quite a reputation for this style.

A rich and luscious palate of concentrated stone fruit and citrus flavours. Complex and balanced, the sweetness is complemented by the acidity, culminating in a refreshingly pleasant and lingering 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.
