Barossa Shiraz at its finest, showcasing the distinctive sub-regional characteristics of fruit selected from the northwestern corner of the Barossa Valley. Dark and structural with underlying minerality, this is a wine with a long life ahead of it.
Sourced from a single block on the Fabal vineyard in the northwest corner of the Barossa Valley where the vines are grown on a very shallow red/brown topsoil layer over an alkaline subsoil. The vineyard sits at an elevation of approximately 325m and has a gentle North West aspect that is perfectly suited to the East-West row orientation resulting in some of the first harvested Shiraz each year in the Valley for St. Hugo. All this combines to create wines of great structure, power, and minerality.
