2021 Chateau Garage ‘Hugo’, Cabernet Sauvignon, Hawke’s Bay
100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Cornerstone Vineyard
It’s all in the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Aromas of chocolate, wild berry fruit, dark olive and integrated oak. This characterful wine has intense chocolate and blackcurrant with power and length. The quintessential ‘iron fist in a silk glove’.
Hugo, my brother, is a talented artist and is always ready to lend a hand with Chateau Garage. His silhouette appeared in the driveway at 10 o’clock at night to help press the last of this Cabernet to barrel. I was exhausted from pressing all day and he got me through. Here’s to Hugo!
