Excellent Langtons Classification. Named for the contribution of Johann Gramp's grandson to the Orlando Wine Company, St Hugo is the very best varietal Cabernet Sauvignon of vintage. Hugo is vintaged entirely from fruit grown to the famed cigar shape of Coonawarra Terra rossa, one of the world's great Cabernet appellations. The team regularly visit the vineyards monitoring development of grapes. Selection is the key to delivering the finest possible St Hugo, only the standout parcels of Coonawarra Cabernet are earmarked for inclusion.
Each vineyard parcel is individually harvested and vinified. All grapes are de-stemmed and crushed into static fermenters. Extraction of colour, flavour and tannin are achieved by pumpovers regularly allowing the fermenting juices to percolate through the skins. Ferments are held on skins to develop power without compromising elegance or freshness. Batches are drained, pressed and returned. Components spend eighteen to twenty four months maturing in a mix of new and seasoned French and American oak hogsheads. Trials of individual barrels are undertaken to ensure the finished St Hugo shows intense varietal flavour, complexity and firm, yet silky tannins.
TASTING NOTES
Deep dark red with an intense crimson purple hue. Lifted and intense on the nose, vibrant cassis and black fruits layered over well integrated oak derived notes of cedar, cinnamon and roasted hazelnut. Richly concentrated flavours combine with stylish and sympathetic oak, supported by long, silky, fine grained tannins and a balance of acidity, culminating in a long, lingering and memorable savoury finish.
