Hugh is the 5th generation of the Australian Hamilton dynasty. As with all families one is a Black Sheep and Hugh Hamilton is it. His wines are far from ordinary. Hugh has a clear vision about the way he sees wines and he produces accordingly. The Dark Arts is a range of wines from varieties that are not meant to go together, but work! Somehow, the rich, dark Grenache is perfectly lifted by the bright, fresh white grapes blended in here. Unusual, and excepeional.
