Hollick Wrattonbully Shiraz 2017 (Coonawarra, South Australia) "...violet, wild herbs, pepper..."
The Hollick ‘Red Ridge’ Wrattonbully vineyard with its rolling hills and stony soil, is a fantastic site for quality wine grape production. The vineyard was planted in 1998 and boasts similar shallow terra rossa soils over limestone to Coonawarra, but is marginally warmer resulting in slightly earlier ripening. Our Wrattonbully vineyard consistently produces low yields of fruit with intense flavour and colour. The Hollick Shiraz displays the rare combination of power and elegance.
"The 2017 Hollick Shiraz is absolutely fantastic. It instanty grabs you attention with its fresh inviting profie of cherries and blackberries which are woven together with spices, pepper, wild herbs and hints of fresh violets. On the palate this is medium to full-bodied and beautifully balanced with ripe fruit, acidity and lovely underlying minerality. The finish is long, fresh and velvety. A sensational Shiraz that is drinking beautifully today." - 93 Points, International Wine Report
