2. 2015 St Hugo Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon, $57.99
Indulge this festive season with this stunning Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon, which shows deep colour with dark berry fruit aromas and notes of bay leaf, with spice and cedar over a backbone of concentrated tight tannins. Rated 95 points by James Halliday.

3. 2017 St Hugo Eden Valley Riesling, $39.99
This riesling has a delicate and refined palate showing a slaty minerality and a taut line of acidity. It’s the perfect match for fresh oysters on a hot summer’s day. Rated 96 points by James Halliday.
