The Toreador Tempranillo
As an innovator in the Coonawarra and Wrattonbully regions, Hollick has experimented with a number of varietals and styles of wines that ‘push the boundaries’ of winemaking.
In the last decade Hollick has launched the following wines to the market:
Since visiting Spain we have had a penchant for many things Spanish. Tempranillo originated in Northern Spain and takes its name from the Spanish word for a little early. It is pronounced 'temp-rah-nee-yoh', and is picked a little earlier than our other red varieties.
The Hollick Tempranillo is made from 100% Tempranillo sourced from the Hollick vineyard at Wrattonbully, located 50 kms north of Coonawarra. The climate of Wrattonbully is slightly warmer than Coonawarra and is well suited to the variety.
This wine is a fabulous accompaniment to many food styles, particularly tapas inspired dishes, but is also terrific on its own. We recommend you enjoy this wine now.

'very good varietal expression on both the bouquet and palate, with vibrant, polished, cherry flavours.' - 90 Points
