St Hugo releases new collection

Producing wines since its first 1980 vintage, St Hugo’s Fine and Rare Collection is a series of back vintage Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon that has been released to showcase the longevity and complexity that is gained by these fine wines with extended cellaring.

Stored in monitored conditions at the St Hugo winery in the Barossa, these back vintage wines from 1998, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 have been hand selected after tasting and review by the chief winemaker, Peter Munro before consideration for re-release.

“The 1998 St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is a mature wine from a vintage that is still displaying primary blackcurrant flavours twenty years on. While the 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 are examples expressing the individual vintage conditions and will continue to develop further complexity over the coming decade,” said St Hugo chief winemaker Peter Munro.
