    A legend of the Barossa wine scene if there ever was one! Hugo Gramp was born in the Barossa in 1895 and it was in this part of the wine world that he worked and lived his entire life. It was Hugo’s grandfather Johan who was a pioneer of the region, planting the first vines in 1847 and running the family wine ‘biz with his son Gustav (known as “Gramp & Sons”), until Hugo took over the reigns at age 25.

    If you fancy laying your hands on a top class, age worthy red (drink now to 2037) with a bottle that’s individually numbered, well here’s your guy.

    This is their latest 2017 vintage and it is quite simply a class act from go to whoa…

    95/100 (James Halliday’s Wine Companion)
    “Arguably the vintage and Barossa (how much Eden Valley is in the wine?)are sufficient. The wine pirouettes on the edge of savoury, earthy, briary aromas and flavours before red and dark cherry (just on the cusp of ripeness) join in the dance.”

    We were taking no chances though so have painstakingly tasted several bottles recently (yes, it’s a bloody hard job sometimes)…we can confirm it’s A-grade stuff! Dense and dark purple in colour with dark fruits and a touch of spice. It’s in no hurry to drink some now, tuck some away in the cellar.
