Born on 19 September 1895 in the Barossa Valley, Hugo Gramp lived and worked his entire life in this world-renowned wine region. Today, his legacy is celebrated in the magnificent new brand home of St Hugo in the Barossa.
Follows in the spirit, if not the letter, of Penfolds Bin 60A, this 51/49% blend, 86% from the Barossa Valley, 14% from Coonawarra, was matured in French oak (33% new) for 18 months. An exceptional wine that has taken the somewhat austere character of Coonawarra and cabernet from a cool vintage into something else, rich and supple overflowing with fruit. As time goes by, elegance will start to appear, making a very good wine into a great one.
