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 2030) with a bottle that’s individually numbered, well here’s your guy.
It’s got a great score of 95/100 from James Halliday and 93/100 from Huon Hooke, who said quite simply “It begs to be cellared and will richly reward some.”
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 2030! It’s a class act.
