Hollick 'The Bard' Sauvignon Blanc 2022 75cl
"Aromatic with hints of pineapple, passionfruit and flinty lime aromas. A crisp palate, with balanced acid and sugar this wine has a pleasing roundness on the palate.."
In 1974 Ian Hollick purchased a piece of grazing land on the southern end of the Coonawarra district. This small block of land was one of the original allocations in the Coonawarra Fruit Colony which John Riddoch founded in 1890. It was never developed as a fruit block, but instead was the site of a tannery, and later a dairy farm.
In 1975 the Hollick's commenced developing this vineyard, progressively planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc. Ian Hollick's involvement with viticulture goes way back to his childhood in Mildura as the son of a soldier settler fruit blocker. After studying Agricultural Science at Dookie Agricultural College, and a tenure with Mildara Wines Coonawarra as National Vineyard Manager, Ian, along with Wendy, launched Hollick Wines in 1983.
