Hugo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
The Hugos are quiet achievers, McLaren Vale agriculturalists for over a century, they always made good wine, not for profit but just for their own enjoyment. Cabernet Sauvignon was planted in 1970, with a view to sharing the tremendous quality of their fruit, the vines are now fully mature and yield vintages of the most wonderful wine. Intensely perfumed and layered with bramble lozenge flavours, swathed in a robe of soft velvet tannins, the proverbial jewel in a velvet glove. Finely integrated French oak is a highlight, dine with Hugo alongside tender beef or gourmandise game.

Bright red maroon colour. Chocolate box mint bouquets, ripe raspberry, blackcurrants and mulberry, white pepper and leafy, varietal capsicum notes over veils of perfumed French mocha oak. A lively, elegant, drying palate on a raft of classic blackcurrant and blueberry flavours, currants, regional chocolate characters and cassis, supported by crisp carob tannins, before a fine, engaging finish.
Hugo Estate Chardonnay
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
Grazing pastures invariably make the most auspicious soils for winegrowing. Hugo owe their splendid provenance to a mixed farm which ran sheep and assorted cattle, dairy and tomatoes, almonds and of course grapes. Chardonnay vineyards came much later, but McLaren Vale, influenced by balmy maritime climes and populated by olive groves, is highly favourable to white grapes. Hugo choose to frame the natural charm of McLaren Vale Chardonnay with a supple touch of oak, allowing the fruit to speak for itself, a ripe peach and nectarine style, perfect for chicken caesar or salade niçoise.

Hugo Estate Reserve Shiraz

The Hugo family property was a mixed farming enterprise, dairy and sheep stud, almonds and tomato, not to mention a paddock or two of grapevine for personal consumption.

Limited yields from the oldest blocks are treated to an extravagant fermentation in completely new French and American oak barriques, after an inspection and barrel cull, the very finest lots are assembled into the McLaren Flat flagship Hugo Reserve Shiraz.

Hugo Estate Shiraz
McLaren Vale
Available by the dozen
Selection of site was essential to the success of the Hugo property. The climate, soils and proximity of McLaren Flat to the coast are contributing factors in maintaining the quality each and every year. Colin Hugo established Shiraz vines on the family farm during the 1950s, John Hugo followed in his father's footsteps, assuming responsibility as steward of the vineyard throughout the 1970s, ultimately taking the initiative to retain the best grapes for his own estate label. The finest parcels of Hugo Shiraz are treated to an extended term of maturation in a selection of finely coopered American oak barrels.

Hugo Wines is very much McLaren Vale, continuing the tradition of quality boutique winemaking from one of the nation's finest estate vineyards

The story of Hugo Wines is intrinsically linked to the property on which the vineyard is established. John Hugo's maternal great grandfather, George Sauerbier acquired the property and first farmed the land in the early 1900s, originally a Southdown sheep stud, grazing cattle and dairy, almonds, glasshouse tomatoes and mixed cropping, not to mention paddocks of grapevine meant for personal consumption. At that time, anything planted had to perform and provide a return, whatever the soil and climatic conditions.

There were no local sources of water and the science involved in agriculture as we know it today was in its infancy. Machinery was limited and the majority of tasks were performed by hand, quite often with the aid of magnificent heavy horses which have now been replaced by tractors and harvesters. Generations later in 1951, still in family hands, Colin and Gwendoline Hugo (nee Sauerbier) built a new homestead and established a block of dry grown Grenache vines which remain productive until this day, the source of an amazaing quality bush wine.

When John took over the reins from his father Colin, he decided to produce an estate label under the guidance of eminent McLaren Vale winemaker Wayne Thomas. The inaugural estate Shiraz was vintaged in 1979 and the estate Cellar Door was opened in October 1982. Much critical acclaim has since been awarded to Hugo Wines.

There are currently thirty hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, Grenache, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc under vine. Many of the original plantings date back to 1970 when John Hugo followed in his father's footsteps on the family vineyard at McLaren Flat.

John and Liz Hugo take pride and joy in the vineyard where they work and at the McLaren Flat estate wineworks where they live. To manage the day to day tasks of managing a vineyard, the family relies on the help of farmhands who return year after year, not to mention the highly capable pruners who know the individual vines like the back of their hand.

Consistency and quality is what Hugo Wines are all about, using nothing but estate grown fruit makes the realization of the highest standards in McLaren Vale wines a reality. The climate soils and proximity to the coast are also contributing factors in maintaining quality. Since inaugural release, Hugo Wines have received many conspicuous wine competition accolades. The Reserve Shiraz is made from the oldest dry grown Shiraz vines on the property. When the old vine Shiraz grapes are processed, parcels are kept seperate for barrel fermentation in new American and French oak hogsheads. Batches earmarked for inclusion into the Reserve Label are only approved after a barrel cull to determine the finest barrels. You can be assured of an exceptional red wine.
