Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia
The Hugos are quiet achievers, McLaren Vale agriculturalists for over a century, they always made good wine, not for profit but just for their own enjoyment. Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 1970, with a view to sharing the tremendous quality of their fruit, the vines are now fully mature and yield vintages of the most wonderful wine. Intensely perfumed and layered with bramble lozenge flavours, swathed in a robe of soft velvet tannins, the proverbial jewel in a velvet glove. Finely integrated French oak is a highlight, dine with Hugo alongside tender beef or gourmandise game.
Bright red maroon colour. Chocolate box mint bouquets, ripe raspberry, blackcurrants and mulberry, white pepper and leafy, varietal capsicum notes over veils of perfumed French mocha oak. A lively, elegant, drying palate on a raft of classic blackcurrant and blueberry flavours, currants, regional chocolate characters and cassis, supported by crisp carob tannins, before a fine, engaging finish.
