St Huberts Cabernet Merlot
Yarra Valley
Available by the dozen
Hubert de Castella's passion for Yarra Valley saw him establish St Huberts in 1862. By the late 1800s it had grown to be the largest winemaking estate, the wines enjoyed immediate success in markets local and abroad. The onset of the Great Depression, the increasing popularity of fortified wine and the emerging profitability of dairy farming saw the vineyard revert to grazing in the 1920s. It wasn't until the 1960s that Yarra Valley again rose to prominence as a wine producing region and St Huberts was once again, one of the leading protagonists.

The precious St Hubert Cabernet blocks were reclaimed after the property reverted to grazing and dairy in the 1920s. The soil is relatively deficient in some nutrients, thus the vines are not overly vigorous. The scarce winter rainfall is collected in a dam at the vineyard and used for irrigation as required in summer using a trickle irrigation system. Fruit is primarily sourced from St Huberts Block, with the inclusion of parcels from Yarra Valley flats. Individual batches are vinified in open vats and closed static fermenters, each in turn is pressed off and racked into a high proportion of new French oak barriques for fifteen months maturation, developing superb depth and wonderful complexity.
 
Dark red, crimson hues. A brooding example of Yarra Valley Cabernet, intense dark berry fruit notes of blueberry and cassis, violets intertwine with reserved, integrated oak and just a hint of mocha. The palate is medium to full bodied, showing lovely roundness and depth. Tannins from the fruit and oak are ripe and powdery, providing excellent structure and length. A stately wine to be enjoyed alongside aged sirloin and jus.
St Huberts Chardonnay
Yarra Valley
Available by the dozen
One of the Yarra Valley's original vineyards dating back to 1862, St Huberts currently operates four blocks of distinguished Chardonnay vines. Planted on a gentle slope of well drained grey loamy soils, the fruit from these parcels provides the backbone to one of Victoria's most stately Chardonnay wines. The princely berries translate into a beautifully aromatic bouquet and rich palate, slightly citrus, set against a background of grapefruit, apple and melon flavours all bound together by suggestions of cool climate mineral and French vanilla oak.

St Huberts Vineyard is gently sloping, thus maximizing drainage and preventing the vines from getting wet feet. Careful management using three trellis systems ensures that each block of vines fully ripens, but also adds complexity to the finished wine. Chardonnay is sourced from the St Hubert property and mature mature Yarra Valley vineyards. A high solids juice, extracted from the pressing of whole bunches and destemmed grapes, is fermented in a mix of new and seasoned French oak. Minimal handling ensures that the fresh varietal fruit and integrated oak characters remain in balance. Batches are treated to maturation on yeast lees, a small component completes malolactic to add texture and palate weight.
 
Light to medium straw, hues of green. Nutty barrel ferment aromas with lifted notes of peach and pear, given complexity by hints of citrus peel and toasty, nougat oak. Generous and rich on the palate, stonefruits, honeysuckle and spicy oak, even and restrained. The finish is tight, with lingering citrus and creme caramel notes.

Pinot Noir has to be hand made and it's fun to make, temperamental and challenging. At St Huberts, the job is made a little more rewarding by the bounties of the soil, well drained clays and loams which are relatively deficient in some nutrients, keeping the vines from becoming overly vigorous, perfect for Pinot Noir. Fertilizer is applied every two or three years to replace the nutrients that the vines take out of the soil. The overall objective is to maximize the potential of one of the best vineyard sites in the Yarra Valley. The Stag is vinified in small, open fermenters, including whole bunches to add complexity, followed by several months maturation in a mix of seasoned and new French oak barrels.
 
Bright red with crimson hues. Attractive macerated dark berry fruits and ripe cherry notes on the bouquet mingle with underlying game and spice characters followed by a hint of oak. Soft fleshy fruit notes follow, the structure is light to medium bodied, the palate is framed by subtle dusty tannins. Hints of oak and plum persist on the finish. A fruit driven style with enough complexity to entice most Pinot lovers to enjoy everyday.
Hubert de Castella was an Australian winemaking pioneer and at the start of the 20th Century, St. Huberts was one of the colony's grandest wineries

Hubert de Castella's passion for the Yarra Valley saw him establish the St Huberts vineyard in 1862. In 1880 St Huberts won Emperor Wilhelm 1 of Germany's award for the most successful exhibitor at the Melbourne International Exhibition, an outstanding achievement.

St Huberts

The onset of the Great Depression in the 1920's precipitated the rapid decline of St Huberts, and in the 1920's the land, reverted to grazing and dairy production. In 1966 replanting occurred at the present site, and there are currently 21 hectares under vine.

The St Huberts vineyard is placed on one of the best viticultural sites in the Yarra Valley. The land is gently sloping, thus maximizing drainage and preventing the vines from getting wet feet or water logged roots that can lead to rotting of the root system. The northwest aspect of the vineyard maximises the exposure to the sun, vital for ripening in a cool climate region. Rainfall is about 900mm per annum.

Due to the fact that most of the rainfall is winter dominated, the likelihood of botrytis setting in during harvest is minimized. The winter rainfall is collected in a dam and then used for irrigation as required in summer using a trickIe irrigation system.

The area is generally free of frost in spring although a severe late frost can be experienced once every 10 -15 years. This is usually associated with the El Nino weather pattern. The soil is well drained grey clay loam over a clay layer of 500 - 600mm depth, however it is relatively deficient in some nutrients, thus the vines are not overly vigorous. Fertilizer is applied every two - three years to replace the nutrients that the vines take out of the soil.

120 years ago St. Huberts wines were the toast of the colony, winning awards internationally, as well as mightily pleasing the grandees back home. Today, the oldest vines on the property were planted in 1966 and generally yield low crops with intense fruit flavour and great depth of colour. A tribute to the quality is the assertion by most winemakers in the area that these vines produce the best Cabernet Sauvignon in the Yarra Valley. The individual vineyard parcels are painstakingly fermented in a range of fermentation vessels in order to enhance the differing flavour and tannin profiles of the Cabernet. These parcels are separated and racked into new and seasoned French oak for fifteen months, to develop the complexity of the wine. The finest oaks are selected to showcase the varietal fruit of the finished Cabernet wine.

To maximise fruit exposure to the sun, a number of trellis types are used, including Scott Henry and the Hanging Cane trellis. Although some of these systems are labour intensive, they assist in improving fruit quality, yield and reduce the need for sprays. The St Huberts wines of today are a reflection of the one of the best vineyard sites in the Yarra Valley. The Estate Vineyard at St Huberts has long been considered one of the finest spots in the valley for Cabernet Sauvignon. The St Huberts wines are all about complexity and soft, ripe flavours.

"The modern St.Huberts estate is the reincarnation of one of Victoria's most famous and historic vineyard properties. Today's St. Huberts was one of the properties that launched the Yarra Valley's second golden age in the 1960s, and the wines continue to be good examples of regional styles. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon are the stars here, don't miss them!" -Ralph Kyte-Powell
