Description

Named in honour of Hugo Gramp, the grandson of Johann Gramp who was killed in a tragic air accident in 1938, St Hugo represents the pinnacle of what can be achieved in any given vintage. Matured for 21 months in mostly new French oak hogsheads, with a small percentage of American oak, this release from the classic. slow ripening 2015 vintage will go down as one of the greats. Very concentrated, its tightly knit palate requires a good decanting in its youth, this is one for the long haul, but perfect with a juicy cut of T-Bone steak.

Smells

A haunting scent of cedar, eucalyptus, blackberries, cassis, chocolate, pencil shavings and mahogany.

Tastes

Very powerful and intensely concentrated, with embracing tannins providing the framework for a long cellar life. Brightly flavoured, it's stuffed with fresh black fruits infused with fine cedary oak and a complex array of classic Cabernet tastes taking your palate on a very long journey. It really deserves some cellar time, but if you haven't the patience, simply decant for an hour or two while you roast up a joint of red meat. Savour this iconic Aussie Cabernet between now and 2040.
