"This shiraz if full of sweet, dark grape flavour. Bloody delicious. It tastes of chocolate, raspberries and sweet, dried out grapes, the lot tempered by fine, smooth skinned tannins…it is downright yum." Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010, Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (Australia), May 2009

92 Points

"This is incredible value for a nicely balanced , well made McLaren Vale Shiraz. It has layers of black fruits and spice, liquorice, oak, finely textured tannins and good length. A touch of Viognier meshes so well you’d hardly recognise it was there." Wine Business Monthly, Tyson Stelzer (Australia), February 2009

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference.” Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken.

During a fleeting half century in the global wine community, the Hesketh family has always followed the path less travelled by. As a result their winemaking philosophy is somewhat different. They only produce wines from the most celebrated grape varieties, from only the most acclaimed regions for producing those varieties, wherever they may be, anywhere in the world.

One of an emerging breed of cutting edge global Négociants, Hesketh wines are hand made from carefully selected vineyards in the worlds best growing regions. These three wines are just the beginning of the story, with exciting new releases from further abroad to be added in the new year.
