$126.00 per case (6) delivered - ST HUBERTS Cabernet Merlot 2017
$21.00 per bottle RRP $26.99
Founded by Hubert de Castella in 1862, the history of St Huberts is an epic tale. From the high of winning a Grand Prix at the Paris Exhibition of 1889 to the low of reverting back to grazing and dairy during the 1920's depression, no wonder it's affectionately referred to as the Yarra Valley's living tradition.
The modern day St Huberts is flourishing today under Senior Winemaker Greg Jarratt. Blessed with one of the best viticultural sites in the Yarra Valley, Greg is making wines with as much character as the wineries colourful history.
The nose is inviting, with lifted blueberries, black currants and briary fruit. Upper Yarra Merlot gives a hint of black olive and star anise, and the Yarra Cabernet provides a herb and leafy undertone.
Flavours and Palate
The wine is medium bodied and balanced with a soft and fleshy mouth feel. Cassis, leaf, cedar and spice flavours follow on from the nose, and oak is very much in the back seat. The ripe - powdery tannins are evident and restrained. 'If you are after a luncheon claret – this will hit the spot….'
