Established 1973, Woodlands of Wilyabrup were one of the first vineyards in Margaret River, planted with a view to emulating the great growths of Bordeaux. Recipients of the highly prestigious Jack Mann Memorial Medal and Wine Industry Lifetime Achievement Award for their tremendous vintages of all things Cabernet. Assembling the rich Medoc style blends are what Woodlands do best. Painstakingly crafted by hand, to challenge the primacy of the illustrious Chateaux de la rive gauche, very few vineyards yield the quality of fruit that merits vintaging into a statuesque wine dominated by the prettily fragrant Cabernet Franc. Woodlands were established from the ground up with a view to achieving limited harvests of the abstruse Bordeaux varietals, only a few hundred cases of good red wine per vintage. Two precious vineyards, located within the elite terroirs of Margaret River's Wilyabrup Valley, are dry grown and farmed through holistic regimens of old world..

Greg Melick embarked on the prodigal road to gambling and booze as a mere teenager, after winning the daily double at Werribee and spending the lot on good red wine. He ultimately returned to the straight and narrow, achieving the rank of ADF Major General, Senior Law Counsel, Master Wine Judge and Officer of Australia AO. Melick now grows his own, he remains besotted with les grands vignobles de Bourgogne, the illustrious Pinot Noir of Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. There are few places in the world, more akin to the 1er Grand Cru style of Pinot Noir, than the temperate pastures along Tasmania's River Derwent. It was here in 2002, amongst the woodland idylls of the apple isle, that Melick established Pressing Matters, a meagre four hectares of superior European clones Pinot Noir. Mr Melick has come full circle, this time exchanging his wager in good wine, to win the highly coveted Royal Melbourne James Halliday Trophy for the finest Pinot Noir in Australia...

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.
