About this winery

St Huberts was originally founded in 1862 by winemaking pioneer and Swiss immigrant Charles Hubert de Castella, who helped position the region as a premium wine producing area.

Tasting notes

An inviting mix of red, dark and blue fruits. Dark cherries, blood plums and perfumed rose petals. A good measure of white pepper spice. Faint graphite and earthy notes are evident too. Palate: Medium bodied and balanced. The palate is vibrant, even and supple. Morello cherries, earth and spice fill the mouth. The wine is bold without being heavy, and refined without being lean or unfinished. Velvety, fine tannins and lingering cherry, chocolate.

Viticultural notes

A cool Spring followed by a mild Summer led to a late vintage across Victoria for 2017. Yields were average to above average, and the mild conditions led to steady ripening and good quality in most areas.

Winemaking notes

Matured for 6 months in stainless steel and French oak.
