2018 St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

Every year St Hugo rates in the 90’s... this 2018 vintage snaring 2 x 95/100 scores. One from Aussie legend critic James Halliday. It will drink superbly through 2028-2040 if well stored... but is very smooth as a younger Cabernet.

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. It is globally iconic Aussie Cabernet. Matured for 21 months in mostly new French oak hogsheads (300L), with a small percentage of American oak. It’s a complex, super premium make of extraordinary value... the price caught in a time warp for 20-years.

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.
