There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the Brunello commune of Montalcino. Whole bunches and wild ferments in the like of ancient clay urns, hand plunged in the old world way, appreciatively unfiltered for a tasteful measure of sauvage.

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.
