Hollick Estates is a boutique winery located on the famed terra rossa soils of Coonawarra. Renowned for their extensive range of premium table wines, including several alternative varietals. All of which can be sampled in Cellar Door. The Hollick Estate’s cellar door oozes charm, a charming stone cottage leads the way toward the tasting room and restaurant where a wall of windows overlooks vines planted by Ian and Wendy Hollick. Their three primary vineyards are Neilson’s Block, Wilgha, and the Red Ridge vineyard in Wrattonbully (developed in 1998).
The wine is a classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon showing intense cassis fruit flavours, with a long finish on the palate and soft tannins. The wine was matured in French oak, adding to its structure, but not dominating the pure Coonawarra Cabernet fruit characters. The fruit for the Cabernet Sauvignon is selected from old vine material from the Wilgha and Neilson's Block vineyards at the cooler, southern end of Coonawarra. Located on the famous terra rossa soil, these vineyards were originally planted by Ian and Wendy Hollick in the 1970s and early 1980s. It will effortlessly cellar for at least 10 years.
