Hugo Wines cabernet sauvignon

Estate grown, single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon planted by John and Liz Hugo in 1988 on the elevated Hugo Estate

There is an unusual richness and concentration of  quality old blue fruits here

Big, soft, juicy McLaren Vale cabernet with loads of fruit and  great carrying tannins. A keeper!

Clean, deep ruby red in colour.

Clean ripe plum and dark berry fruits, along with woody herbs, dried autumn leaves, violets and a touch of spice/vanilla from the oak maturation.

Rich mouth filling plummy fruit, dark chocolate with plush mid-palate fruit and soft, fine tannins. The oak is well integrated and supports the rich fruit flavours while adding complexity.

Colour: Dark intense maroon with purple hues.
Bouquet: Fresh dark berry fruits, mulberry and blackcurrant with hints of violets
and mint.
Palate: Medium bodied, black fruits of blackcurrant, black cherry accompanied by
a hint of chocolate, violet and sage. Balanced Cabernet fruit, with a rich middle
palate and fine soft tannins. Good length of palate, very food friendly and is ready
to drink, it will continue to develop in complexity.
