Distinguished Langtons Classification. An outstanding vintage release of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon, as crafted by one of Australia's grand old wineries, collated from superior vineyards in Coonawarra, winner this year of a breathtaking three Trophies and five Gold Medals. Johann Gramp planted his first vines on the banks of Jacob's Creek in 1847, Hugo was his grandson, the patriarch of Orlando Wines.
Fruit is sourced from precious old blocks of fully mature Cabernet Sauvignon vines planted to Coonawarra Terra rossa over limestone soils. Grapes are destemmed and crushed, each unique parcel is treated to an individual vinification process in static fermenters. Extraction of colour, flavour and tannin are achieved by regular pumpovers, allowing the fermenting juices to percolate through the skins, within a temperature range of 15C to 28C. Ferments are held on skins for twelve to twenty days before draining and pressing, rack and return. The wines are matured eighteen to twenty four months in a selection of new and one year old French oak hogsheads before the final assemblage. Alcohol 14.5%
TASTING NOTES
Full depth red with crimson hues. Intense blackberry and cassis with minty notes and spicy oak. Concentrated blackberry, cassis and mint on the palate with supple velvety tannins and integrated cedary oak. The ripe and intense fruit flavours make St Hugo a match with eye fillet of beef, jus and potatoes.
