St Hugo Single Vineyard ‘Flint’ Coonawarra Cabernet 2018
As Chief Winemaker Peter Munro pointed out “You can taste the dirt a bit more here”. Bright deep ruby in colour and opens with broad and muscular aromas – fruit pastilles, dried basil, baked earth and toasty oak at the fore. It’s then dry and packs quite a punch of robust, dense, dark sweet fruits plus a firm backbone of mouthcoating tannins providing exceptional length and persistence. No doubt there is fantastic power and longevity to this wine but just lacking quite the finesse of the ‘Signature Collection’ Cabernet.
