2016 HUGO MCLAREN VALE SHI­RAZ CABER­NET

Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $28 / 2036

Gold medal McLaren Vale, top gold medal Ade­laide and Na­tional Wine Shows ’17. John Hugo would be jus­ti­fied in feel­ing un­lucky to have not won a tro­phy. The seam­less 75/25% blend has re­sulted in a palate that over­flows with red and black fruits, yet is el­e­gant and tex­tured. In­deed there are some notes en­coun­tered in cool re­gions (spice and pep­per and a juicy mouth­feel). 14% alc.

WINE­MAKER Re­nae Hirsch & Brian Light What sets this wine apart?

This is the first shi­raz caber­net blend pro­duced by Hugo. Sourced from se­lect blocks on the el­e­vated Hugo es­tate and co-fer­mented to help in­te­grate the two va­ri­eties, the wine then re­ceives eight months in French and Amer­i­can oak with care­ful bar­rel se­lec­tion be­fore bot­tling.
