Dr Frederick Kiel would take the trek by paddle steamer from Melbourne every summer during the late 1800s to spend his summers at Sorrento. His children established a grazing station nearby, on a property acquired from the Baillieu family along Portsea Ocean Beach, ultimately planted to vineyards in 2000. These are the most extreme western longitudes of Mornington, the undulating paddocks and sweeping views of tempestuous Bass Strait are a magical place for growing Burgundesque styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, well protected north facing parcels of propitious free draining limestone and calcareous sands.

Hugo Estate Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
Selection of site was essential to the success of the Hugo property. The climate, soils and proximity of McLaren Flat to the coast are contributing factors in maintaining the quality each and every year. Colin Hugo established Shiraz vines on the family farm during the 1950s, John Hugo followed in his father's footsteps, assuming responsibility as steward of the vineyard throughout the 1970s, ultimately taking the initiative to retain the best grapes for his own estate label. The finest parcels of Hugo Shiraz are treated to an extended term of maturation in a selection of finely coopered American oak barrels.
