Hollick Tannery Block Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Hollick Tannery Block Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot has ripe, upfront red berry fruit, roses and violets on the nose, making way for a soft, full palate with ripe, supple tannins. With an appealing array of blueberry and plum fruit on the medium to full-bodied palate, the finely textured and long finish is balanced by a lovely level of natural acidity.

The classic Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot thrive in the sunshine of Australia's Coonawarra region, and maturation in French and American oak contributes to the Hollick Tannery Block's overall balance and drinkability. Cabernet Sauvignon is the major component of the blend, with around 10% of Merlot added for softness in the early years of the wine's life. More often than not a dash of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are also included to add complexity.
