About Hugh Hamilton 'The Villain' 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon, Mclaren Vale

From Richard Hamilton, the adventurous smuggler who planted the first grapes in South Australia, to Mary, the first woman to run the Hamilton wine business, our story spans six generations. Hugh Hamilton is the fifth generation is regarded as the black sheep of the family. His daughter and sixth generation of the family, Mary, continues the legacy, making them Australia’s Oldest Wine Family. The Black Sheep experience is extraordinary.

Renowned as one of the world’s great red grapes, Cabernet arguably finds its greatest expression in the maritime climate of Bordeaux. McLaren Vale is warmer and drier, but shares those maritime conditions. Cabernet is characterized by small, dark, tough skinned berries, which produce long-lived wines of intense color and firm tannins.

The Cabernet from the Black Sheep Block is fleet on its feet, having more high tone perfume and exotic spices. Comparatively, the Cabernet grown at Cellar Block tends more toward weight and texture. Careful blending of the two blocks produces a wine of both presence and elegance - this is the Villain. On the nose is ripe varietal Cabernet capsicum, brambles, and rose petals. Maple, fennel, and thyme. Petrichor. Fine tannins gloss your cheeks. Sweet fruit balanced with impeccable texture. Immensely satisfying, snappy, and fierce-tasty.
