St. Hugo Single Vineyard Coonawarra Flint Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
St Hugo is a story of legacy and reinvention, their team honour the traditions of winemaking legend Hugo Gramp. Grandson of pioneering vigneron Johann Gramp and founder of Gramp & Sons winery in 1847. Bringing his historical vision of not only the brand but the Barossa into the modern world.
St Hugo pays tribute to its namesake Hugo, and each vintage they make is in celebration of his love of the land he grew up on, from their first vintage in 1980. The St Hugo wines showcase deep respect for the grapes grown on their sites by turning them into wines with structure, power and elegance. The wines are crafted to be part of your celebrations with loved ones all over the world – from their vineyards to your table.
In 1989, vines were planted and grown on the famed ‘terra rossa’ soil of the region, which in this north-west corner is slightly more fertile, resulting in wines of great power and opulence.
No mistaking the distinctive aromas of violets and perfumed, scented cabernet that heralds it is from Coonawarra. It's from the northwest part of Coonawarra, which is more in the blackcurrant zone. More generous and less floral and is balanced with 50 percent new French oak. A deep and generously appointed Coonawarra cabernet. Outstanding wine. - Ray Jordan, The West Australian, 96 Points
