    If you know much about iconic Aussie red labels (especially anything with the words Cabernet and Coonawarra slapped on the label) you’ll know St Hugo. They’re up there with the likes of Wynns, Riddoch and Petaluma as the Coonawarra’s most premium Cabernet labels.

    And if you know nothing about iconic Aussie labels but just fancy laying your hands on a world class, age worthy red (drink now to 2040) with a bottle that’s individually numbered, well here’s your guy.

    This is their latest 2018 vintage and it is quite simply a class act from woah to go…

    95/100 (James Halliday’s Wine Companion)
    “This is a quintessential St Hugo of might and poise. Deep, ripe black/redcurrants and cassis mark out a long palate, accented with sage and impeccably braced with classy French oak and a mouth-filling splay of fine tannins. Bright acidity completes a long finish.”

    93/100 (Huon Hooke, The Real Review)
    “The wine is full-bodied and quite elegant, with a certain touch of leanness to the profile, the tannins firm and drying on the finish.”

    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! Darkly coloured, full bodied Coonawarra Cabernet, loads of dark berry and cassis flavours, individually numbered bottles with cellaring potential up to 2040!

    It’s a class act.
