Hollick have been growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz in Coonawarra since the 1980s, and in 1998 they expanded into the Wrattonbully region, 50km north of their Coonawarra vineyards. The Wrattonbully vineyard has a similar soil structure to their Coonawarra vineyards; terra rossa over limestone, with the more northerly location helping to develop rich, full bodied and aromatic Shiraz.
Careful handling in the winery ensured that the vibrant flavours seen in the vineyard are evident in the resultant wine. Eighteen months in a mix of French and American oak barrels has added complexity and texture whilst also allowing a softening of the tannin structure.
