The Bard range from Hollick celebrates the work of Australia’s best known lyric poet, John Shaw Neilson, who was raised in the cottage on the Hollick Neilson’s Block vineyard. Revered by his peers in the world of literature, Neilson was born in Penola in 1872, and it is thought that much of the imagery in his poetry was conjured up during his childhood experiences in the swampy bushland around Coonawarra.

The long cool growing period which is experienced in Coonawarra, is ideal for flavour development in Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit was picked at optimum ripeness and carefully handled to retain the flavours achieved in the vineyard. Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon typically yields flavours and aromas of dark berries, cherries, plums and other dark fruits. This wine is no exception and shows the Hollick style of producing wines. It also makes this wine an excellent accompaniment to food.
