You can make gluster only read from a designated node/volume but adding 
option read-subvolume <vol-name>
to your replicate definition.

something like this

volume vol-a
  type protocol/client
  option transport-type tcp
  option remote-host
  option remote-subvolume brick
volume replication
  type cluster/replicate
  subvolumes vol-a vol-b vol-c [...]
  option read-subvolume vol-a
