Product Description

The Stock Route which ran along the higher ridges of Terra Rossa soil between Coonawarra and Wrattonbully gives this wine its name.
The blend is made in the traditional Australian style. The Stock Route Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon demonstrates the perfect pairing of key grape varieties from the Hollick’s regional vineyards. The majority of the Shiraz comes from Hollick’s Wrattonbully vineyard, and it is complemented by small portions of Coonawarra Shiraz and Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.
Careful handling in the winery ensured that the vibrant flavours seen in the vineyard are evident in the resultant wine. Eighteen months in a mix of French and American oak barrels adds a complexity and texture whilst also allowing a softening of the tannin structure.
Hollick have been growing Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz in Coonawarra since the 1980s, and in 1998 they expanded into the Wrattonbully region, 50km north of their Coonawarra vineyards. The Wrattonbully vineyard has a similar soil structure to their Coonawarra vineyards; terra rossa over limestone, with the more northerly location helping to develop rich, full bodied and aromatic Shiraz.

Food Match: Red meats with robust sauces. Mature cheeses
