Hollick The Gondolier Barbera 2014


I was interested from the outset here - Barbera from Cabernet country.

A handy wine reaching out with some complexity and richness. Fifteen months in French oak has played its hand. A little warm in the mouth, perhaps a tad overripe. Plums, sour cherries and tomato leaf roll through with a deft touch of spice. Mouthfeel is soft and long with good acidity whipping up the tail.

Good going all up.

Drink now and over the short term.

89/100 - Good+
