The Gondolier Barbera

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:

  • Savagnin
  • Rose
  • Tempranillo
  • Sangiovese Cabernet
  • Barbera

Barbera is the third most widely planted red variety in Italy, after Sangiovese. The highest quality Barbera is grown in the Piedmont region, producing richly fruited wines that show low to moderate levels of tannin and good natural acidity, which provides early drinking pleasure.

Utilising grapes grown on our 'Italian Block' on the Wilgha vineyard in Coonawarra, this wine is made in extremely small quantities. It has a soft and harmonious palate with excellent mouthfeel and balance.

Enjoy now on its own or with Italian inspired dishes.

'Chocolate, cola, dark cherries, plenty of juice and rounds of spice; this has a lot going on, and plenty of fruit, and is accordingly delicious.' - 92 points
