Overview

Overview

Just like the noble creature, The Stag wines represent elegance, grace and esteem. Quintessentially Victorian, they are made in a classic cool climate style. Following the success and popularity of St Huberts The Stag Pinot Noir introduced in 2008, a Victorian Chardonnay and Shiraz were added to the tier in 2016. The 2017 Tempranillo Shiraz is our first vintage release.

Intended as the ideal “food red”.

Taste Description

Taste Description

Nose

Wild berries, black olive and rhubarb notes. Fragrant nutmeg and cedary oak, underpinned by delicate notes of sage and violet florals.

Flavours and Palate

Medium bodied and supple, with cherry, chocolate and tobacco notes. Tempranillo tannins have a powderyfeel about them, leading to a savoury spice finish.

Victoria

Australia’s second smallest state is home to more regions and wineries than any other. A mix of cool and warm regions means variety is the spice of life in Victoria – from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula, to rich Shiraz from Heathcote and the Grampians and world famous fortified wines from Rutherglen, it’s a paradise for wine lovers.

As a “don the hat” to this old world variety, and mix of traditional and modern winemaking techniques are employed. Picked at optimum ripeness, particularly to avoid unripe tannins common in Tempranillo (and overripe characters in Shiraz). Whole berry fermentation in both open and closed style fermenters. Some parcels pressed off early for fruit expression, and others macerated, to soften tannins and build savoury notes.

Greg Jarratt - Winemaker

Greg is a natural DIYer who relishes the challenge of making things. Whether it involves soldering jewellery, or making award-winning St Huberts Cabernet, Greg is very creative and hands on.
Following a Bachelor of Applied Science in Wine at Charles Sturt University and vintage work around Australia and in Bordeaux, Greg was appointed Assistant Winemaker and Cellar Hand at Coldstream Hills in the Yarra Valley in 1995. During his three-year tenure, Greg went back to Bordeaux in 1996 and then Languedoc-Roussillon working for La Perouse wines in 1997. In 1998, he moved to the Hunter Valley and made wines for Lindeman’s, Tulloch and Hungerford Hill. Nonetheless he had developed a taste for the Yarra Valley, so in 2001 Greg returned to Coldstream Hills and in 2006 was appointed Winemaker of St Huberts. Greg is a Len Evans Tutorial scholar, and has been an Associate Judge and Judge at wine shows including the Canberra National Wine Show and the Royal Sydney & Melbourne Wine Shows.
