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.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep crimson red.
A dense and ripe nose showing sweet blackberry and cassis fruits, complemented by well handled cinnamon oak.
Rich and powerful yet still maintaining a degree of stylish elegance, the dark berry fruit and well integrated oak flavours are supported by balanced acidity and finely structured silky tannins, leading to a persistent finish.
Careful cellaring of this wine for the next 8-12 years will enable further development and integration of the ripe and intense fruit flavours for which it has come to be known.
Recommended with herb-crusted lamb rack, served with Rösti of sweet potato and basil, and a red wine glaze. The green herbs bring out a hint of herbaceousness in this wine.
