Cracka Review

Hugo Wines are one of the McLaren Vale’s best-kept secrets, making wines that are a joyous representation of the region. This Cabernet is a perfect example of a grape style that the area is not famed for, however this proves to be a worthy exception. If you wanted evidence that this grape is all about nobility then just taste this cracking example. Intense aromas of black cherry and licorice lead to a long, layered and lingering palate.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Clean, deep ruby red in colour

Bouquet: 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

Palate: 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

Serve with: Duck rilletes with piccalilli, braised goat ragu or game pie

2014 Hugo Cabernet Sauvignon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; fragrant cassis aromas and nicely handled oak flow into a palate with good structure, clear, ripe berry varietal character, and neatly balanced tannins.
