Lubiana is a fifth generation winemaker, one of the apple isle's leading vignerons, he works to an arcane system of seasonal chronometers, governed by cosmic rhythms, the turning of leaves and angle of the moon. His wines are given full indulgence to make themselves. Ferments lie undisturbed and movements to barrel are led by gravity.

Hugo Estate Reserve Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
The Hugo family property was a mixed farming enterprise, dairy and sheep stud, almonds and tomato, not to mention a paddock or two of grapevine for personal consumption. The first commercial vintage of Shiraz was in 1979 but a Reserve quality Shiraz was not considered for another twenty years. Limited yields from the oldest blocks are treated to an extravagant fermentation in completely new French and American oak barriques, after an inspection and barrel cull, the very finest lots are assembled into the McLaren Flat flagship Hugo Reserve Shiraz.

Discernibly dry grown, a classic complex, velvety mouthfeel with well integrated tannins before an intense, aromatically spiced bramble finish. A match to red wine brisket and melted cheddar pie.
