Hollick is a well established Coonawarra producer crafting quite traditional regional styles from some seriously old vines. A consistent 5 star winery in James Halliday's Wine Companion, Hollick is most famous for it's Cabernet and blends, of which it has several (not least the famous Ravenswood).
Hollick HistoryThe Hollick winery, cellar door and restaurant complex is established on "Neilson's Block", one of the original John Riddoch vineyard blocks on prime Coonawarra dirt, with the cellar door itself housed in a restored, heritage listed sandstone cottage from the 1860s.
Hollick VineyardsNeilsons Block itself was first planted by Ian and Wendy Hollick in 1975 and is the original Hollick planting. This was supplemented with the nearby Wilgha vineyard, purchased in 1987 and the Red Ridge vineyard which was developed in 1998 at Wrattonbully, giving Hollick a total of over 200 acres of vineyard plantings.
The plantings themselves are biased towards red varieties (80% of the total) with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot making up the bulk of the vines, with the balance going to Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
Hollick Wine TypesThe Hollick Wine Range is broken into several tiers, beginning with 'blends' that includes a Sauv Blanc Sem, Shiraz Viognier and Cabernet Merlot amongst others. Next tier is the straight varietals including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Wrattonbully Shiraz, followed by the 'Avant Garde' line that covers such oddities as Savagnin, Barbera and a very smart sparkling Merlot. Finally, the icon range covers the top Hollick wines, featuring the Ravenswood Cabernet Sauvignon, Wilgha Shiraz and Neilson's Block Merlot.

It makes sense to make a Sparkling style from Merlot, normally it’s all about Sparkling Shiraz but the softness and approachability of a young Merlot suggests its going to make a consumer friendly sparkling red. It’s fruity and soft with a generou...
Wrattonbully remains one of the lesser-known parts of the Limestone Coast but is just distinctive thanks to the unique red soil over limestone or what is referred to as terra rossa. This Shiraz from Hollick combines power with elegance showing aro...
