Ravenswood Lane is the link between the Hollick Coonawarra Vineyards, namely the Neilson's Block. First vintaged in 1988, Ravenswood is only released when the wine satisfies the very exacting quality parameters set by the Hollick team. The best parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Hollick vineyards are earmarked for Ravenswood, typically the fruit comes from the oldest vines growing in very shallow Terra rossa soil. Released in extremely limited quantities, it stands as an icon Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon of great significance.
The twelve hectare Neilson's Block was one of the original John Riddoch selections, in true Coonawarra fashion it was exploited as a dairy farm until the planting of rootstock in 1975. Extensive canopy renovation has envigorated the vines and revitalised the quality of harvest. Consistently producing some of Coonawarra's best Cabernet, the cream of crop is earmarked for Ravenswood. Once in the winery the utmost care is taken to preserve the unique and exquisite fruit characters which are its raison d'ĂȘtre. The fruit begins vinification in fermenters before being filled to completely new Tarandsaud & Seguin Moreau French oak barriques for completion and eighteen months maturation. Alcohol 14.0%
TASTING NOTES
Dense crimson with purple hues at the rim. Lifted, penetrating aromas of blackcurrant and plums, cassis and black olive. A wine of genuine class with intense flavours of dark berry fruits and hints of dried herbs, menthol and chocolate oak, over integrated and soft, fine grained tannins that ensure the wine is approachable in its youth, the track suggests it cellars exceptionally well. Complex and concentrated, best enjoyed with fine gourmandise.
