ST HUGO IS ALL THE GO!
A classic Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon that has been produced by one of South Australia’s oldest wineries since the 1980s was the big winner at this week’s 2019 Limestone Coast Wine Show. The 2016 St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon won the Bill Redman Trophy for Best Wine of Show at tonight’s trophy presentation feast held at Penola’s Rymill Hall, after earlier winning the HR (Ron) Haselgrove Trophy for Best Cabernet Sauvignon and the David Wynn Trophy for Best Red Wine of Show. The result saw St Hugo viticulturist, Tim McCarthy, awarded the Arthur Hoffmann Trophy for Viticulturist of the Year for the second year in a row, after last year taking top honours with the 2016 George Wyndham ‘I Am George’ Shiraz Cabernet.
Chief of Judges, Samantha Connew, described the 2016 St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon as “A beautiful example of a wine from a terrific variety which highlights exactly what Cabernet from this region should be about.”
