Hollick’s Bard range of wines 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. 2018 was a superb vintage for Coonawarra, near perfect vintage conditions delivering fruit of outstanding quality.
Totally opaque black dark red colour with a deep dark red hue. Nosing offers up aromas of blackcurrant infused with a mix of bay leaf and black olive which are trailed by cedary tobacco notes and traces of capsicum. Medium bodied, rich blackcurrant and mulberry fruits overlay cedary tobacco, earthy black olive and spicy bay leaf characters. Slightly dryish but fine grained tannins with a long elegant conclusion.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Alc. 14.5%
