2016 Reserve Shiraz

Only made in years with exceptional vintage conditions, the Hugo reserve shiraz is sourced from the oldest shiraz vines on the Hugo estate planted by John Hugo in 1969. These old gnarly vines are hand picked and hand sorted and consistently produce wines of depth, intensity and generous mouthfeel while still having fine soft tannins.
