2017 Vintage has been a year where once again careful planning by John & Liz in the vineyard has proved vital in ensuring Hugo Wines has the best fruit possible. After the third wettest summer on record the vines had grown vigorously and when crop estimations started being calculated with close friend and highly regarded viticulturist Ray Guerin we knew the yields were high. It was therefore decided that Hugo Wines as always would put quality over quantity and drop 30% of the Shiraz bunches on the ground 6 weeks before picking to ensure the vines could produce the best even ripe fruit with exceptional flavour and character. We knew while tasting the fruit during vintage, this decision was the right one and are incredibly proud of the flavours and intensity the Hugo Estate Vineyard has once again been able to produce in 2017.
