Savagnin is not to be confused with Sauvignon Blanc, it gives vibrant apple and pear characters, is perfect with a range of foods, and exemplifies the Hollick teamâ??s innovative approach to trialling new varieties.
2010 Vintage Reviews
'This...shows that savagnin can work well in Australia. Winemaker Matt Caldersmith has crafted an aromatic, crisp, clean and fresh white wine with zingy green apple and pear notes. A wine for enjoying in its youth, it has good acid and nice length and should be served well chilled'
'Hollick...back on the tasting list with the new-wave Savagnin' 8.5/10
'Juicy, fresh nose. Zesty, tangy palate with hints of lime and sherbet. Dryish flavoursome finish. Good entrÃ©e style.'
