St Hugo wines honour the legacy of Hugo Gramp who was a visionary leader and managing director of Gramp & Sons winery from 1920 to 1938. The brand was first launched in 1983 with the inaugural 1980 vintage of St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the following 30 vintages this wine has gained an enviable reputation as a highly awarded wine with over 1000 wine show awards including 33 trophies, and is listed on fine wine auctioneers’ Langtons Classification of Australian Wine VI proving the wine’s pedigree and desirability on the auction market. St Hugo’s wine style is driven by a combination of power and elegance.
St Hugo has a long and respected history and remains a top-notch, premium Cabernet with classic Coonawarra cassis flavours, a hint of mint and dusty earthiness. A smooth and elegant texture, well-structured with neither acid nor tannins sitting out of place.
This vintage certainly hasn't missed the mark.
