RIC RED FAQs
DR3 x St Hugo remains our extremely limited, annual release of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Ric Red is juicy, plush red blend - a Secret Sauce, that brings people together all year round.
Just as a magician never reveals his tricks, we're keeping Daniel's Secret Sauce under wraps. We can tell you it's juicy, plush, and bursting with fruit.
The first release of Ric Red is from the 2021 vintage. Good Spring rainfall then set the vines up well for what was to become a very mild and dry ripening season. With no significant rain, temperatures below average and only 3 days above 35⁰C in February and March, ideally ripening conditions were observed resulting in an extended ripening window; a wonderful vintage.
Ric Red will be available in Australia online at sthugo.com and the St Hugo Cellar Door, but with the potential to expand to new markets in the future. To be notified about upcoming releases, you can subscribe to the Ric Red newsletter here sthugo.com/ric-red-sign-up.
BEHIND THE ARTWORK
Daniel loves bringing people together, and the crafting and enjoyment of Ric Red is no exception – from creating the wine in partnership with St Hugo, to having his good friend and helmet designer; Ornamental Conifer design the label.
