The Stag is a new tier of wines from the pioneering Australian wine producer, St Huberts, sourced locally from different wine growing regions around the world. Blending select lots from California’s North Coast, The Stag ref lects a deep connection between St Huberts heritage and California’s focused approach to vineyard selection. Approachable and for immediate enjoyment, the Stag expresses freshness of fruit, floral and spice intrigue, complexity in its youth, balance and elegance.
Blueberry, brown sugar, sweet-fruit, plum and blackberry aromas persist with hints of dark chocolate, elderberry and nutmeg
characters. Packed with exuberant and youthful black, red and blue fruit, complemented by notes of stewed capsicum, pepper and spice. Medium-bodied with subtly layered fruit. The luxuriant palate is vibrant, even, lush and silky. Black currant, vanilla, and pronounced tannins persist through the finish. Plenty of mid-palate richness, intensity and depth. Intense blueberry/
mocha/cocoa notes. Full, ripe, balanced with powerful dark fruit/dark chocolate flavors and underlying savory oak. Supple and graceful, with balanced texture, excellent structure and weight. Finishes firm and long.
Established in 1862 by Hubert de Castella, St Huberts was named after the Patron Saint of the Hunt – a 7th century nobleman who turned life around after an encounter with a magnificent stag carrying a shining cross between his antlers. St Huberts was one of the first wineries established in the Yarra Valley and has an enviable history of producing award-winning wines. Just like the noble creature, The Stag tier of wines represents elegance, grace and esteem.
