So you want to start a wine cellar?

So you want to start a wine cellar but don't have the patience or expertise to enter the auction market? 

St Hugo has done the cellaring work for you with the release of their Fine and Rare Collection, a collection of back vintage wines showcasing the quality of one of Australia’s leading red wines.



Showcasing select vintages over St Hugo's 40-year history, the Fine and Rare Collection aims to highlight the potential longevity of the range. 

Stored securely and in carefully monitored conditions at the St Hugo winery in the Barossa, back vintage cabernets from 1998, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 have been selected by the chief winemaker, Peter Munro, for re-release.

“The St Hugo Fine and Rare Collection is an exciting release of some of our finest back vintages," Munro says. 

"It has been fascinating to monitor the evolutionary transformation that these wines have undergone during the extended cellaring process.

"The 1998 St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon is a fully mature wine from an exceptional vintage that is still displaying primary blackcurrant flavours twenty years on while the 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 are excellent examples expressing the individual vintage conditions and will continue to develop further complexity over the coming decade.”

The St Hugo Fine and Rare Collection is now available to collectors and customers for purchase through select wine merchants, the St Hugo wine club (https://store.sthugo.com/Wine-Club) and selected venues.

St Hugo was named as a tribute to Hugo Gramp, former managing director of G. Gramp & Sons in the 1920s and 1930s.
