Jacob’s Creek St Hugo Cabernet Sauvignon is named after Johann’s grandson Hugo Gramp a key figure at Orlando Wines. It is the very best Jacob’s Creek Cabernet Sauvignon and as such bears the 'Jacob’s Creek Winemakers' endorser. This St Hugo was first launched in 1983 and has always had a signature style of power & elegance that has continued every vintage.
St Hugo is made entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon grown in South Australia’s famous Coonawarra region, an area considered by many as Australia’s best Cabernet region. The result is a full-bodied wine displaying a rich, textured palate of concentrated cassis and berry fruit flavours with well-integrated tannins.
Colour: Full depth red with an intense crimson-purple edge
Aroma: Lifted and intense on the nose, with vibrant cassis and black fruits layered over well integrated oak-derived notes of cedar, cinnamon and roasted hazelnut.
Palate: Richly concentrated fruit flavours combines with stylish and sympathetic oak supported by long, silky, fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity. The perfect balance between power and elegance, these attributes had become a stylistic signature of St Hugo over many years.
This multiple award winning wine is ideally suited to red meat dishes and in particular, grilled steak or a seasoned lamb rack.
