St Hugo is named after Johann’s grandson Hugo Gramp a key figure at Orlando Wines. It is the very best Jacob’s Creek Cabernet Sauvignon and is part of our most premium range.
This wine is made entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon grown in South Australia’s famous Coonawarra region, an area considered by many as Australia’s best Cabernet region. The result is a full-bodied wine displaying a rich, textured palate of concentrated cassis and berry fruit flavours with well-integrated tannins.

The Riverina, Rutherglen and Hobart wine shows have been a happy gold medal hunting ground for the wine, insiders will know what this means. Strong purple-red colour and powerful palate that is a classic example of the 'doughnut' structure of cabernet lacking mid-palate fruit between a powerful opening and finish.Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011
Winery Tasting Notes
Full depth red with crimson hues.
Intense blackberry and cassis with minty notes and spicy oak.
Concentrated blackberry, cassis and mint with supple velvety tannins and integrated cedary oak.
Recommended with pan-cooked eye fillet of beef, served with beef jus and Boulangere potatoes. The simplicity of the beef with the crispy dish of thinly sliced baked potatoes showcases the ripe intensity of this wine.
Carefully cellaring this wine for the next 5-10 years will enable further development and integration of the ripe and intense fruit flavours it has come to be known for.
