Vineyard Info

Coonawarra's terra rossa soil is some of the most famous soil in the world. Its dark red clay over limestone provides excellent drainage and the right balance of nutrients, the ideal medium for vine growth and production of high-quality fruit. The climate of Coonawarra is markedly influenced by proximity to the coast, often creating morning cloud cover, which has a profound effect on sunshine hours and hence, fruit development. This moderating effect provides optimum conditions for ripening – long and slow – allowing maximum flavour accumulation and development of fine tannins. Since the renaissance of Coonawarra in the 1950s, the region has produced many classic red wines, mainly based on Cabernet Sauvignon. In the vineyard, the Hollick Team utilises a blend of traditional methods and modern technology, which are employed to achieve balance in the wine, and consistency of style in the market place.
