Hollick Cabernet Sauvignon 1984 (1 x 750mL), Coonawrra, Cork

The climatic conditions leading up to, and during the 1984 Coonawarra vintage, were some of the best in recent years. From the outset therefore, this wine showed great potential. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the Hollick Coonawarra vineyard, it is elegant in style and shows great balance and integration of varietal flavour and oak. The wine was matured in French and American oak for 12 months prior to bottling.

The flavours are intense and complex, and will improve with further bottle age. To have won the prestigious Jimmy Watson Trophy with only their third commercial vintage is an outstanding achievement for this small premium producer. With less than 2000 cases produced, the wine is extremely limited in availability.
