There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, thrice winners of the exalted Jimmy Watson Memorial..

Hollick Nectar Botrytis Riesling 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Riesling Coonawarra South Australia
It is said that the gloriously sweet, concentrated wines which result from grapes infected by Noble Rot Botrytis Cinerea are indeed a nectar of the gods. Ever since crafting their first botrytised wines, Hollick have developed quite a reputation for this rich style, fashioned exclusively from Coonawarra Riesling grapes grown to the Hollick Wilgha Vineyard. The nose exudes a complex array of fragrances, the luscious palate displays honey, mandarin peel and apricot flavours, moving slowly towards an everlasting finish and cleansing drying acidity.
Available by the dozen

Coonawarra (via the Mildara wineworks) was one of the pioneering districts for the making of this style. Botrytis wines are made in extremely small quantities, and only in years when the Noble Rot or Botrytis cinerea appears. Each year the Hollick team's patience is tested, waiting for Botrytis to develop naturally in the vineyard. In years of low infection, cordon cutting is practised to dehydrate the grapes and concentrate the flavours. Once harvested and pressed, the juice is cold settled for several days then seeded with yeast and fermented until the desired balance between sweetness and acidity is attained. Gentle pressing and a long cool fermentation retain the vibrancy and freshness of flavour.
Bright golden straw colour. Clean and fresh aromas of dried apricot and honey with hints of grapefruit and orange peel. A rich and luscious palate of concentrated apricot, lemon and mandarin fruit flavours, a mouth coating wine to be appreciated as much for its fruit, as for the complexity and balance between sweetness and delicate acidity, to achieve a refreshing, lingering after taste. Serve chilled with pâté de foie or dried fruits and ripe soft cheese.
