The fruit for the 2009 sparkling merlot was picked, crushed and then fermented on skins for six days in stainless steel tanks. This base wine was then matured in a mixture of French and American oak for eighteen months. The secondary fermentation which changes the wine from still to sparkling, has produced a fine persistent bead, which is fresh and fruity.

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.
