Expert Reviews

"The 2007 has intense green bean character, zesty, ripe tropical flavours, a riot of lychee and gooseberry with gentle acidity to finish." Quaff 2009, Peter Forrestal (Australia), 2009

88 Points & 3 1/2 Stars. "Some oyster shell minerals on the nose, green apples and zesty tropical notes. The palate’s crisp, more apples...nicely balanced…" Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009, Nick Stock (Australia), 2008

93 Points & Recommended. "Spotlessly clean; has that extra intensity of flavour expected from Marlborough, ranging through gooseberry, passionfruit and redcurrant; good balance and length." James Halliday Wine Companion 2009, James Halliday (Australia), July 08

"New to the crowded say blanc market, but one that is sure to stay. There is plenty of the grapes typical powerful fruitiness with just a hint of grassiness to tone the wine down. Serve with crab and chilli gnocchi."don hay, Maryann Egan (Australia), 31 Aug 08

"Heres another reason why sauv blanc is so the new black, or white. Heskeths variety is the sort of drink that melts in your mouth. Though its better sipped then swished. A delicate fruity smell with a hint of honey follows with a powerful, clean and delightful taste. Best shared by two, preferably on a picnic rug in spring." MX (Australia), 29 Aug 08

Winery Tasting Notes


Pale straw with hints of green and gold.


Classic, lifted Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with capsicum, cut grass, passionfruit and gooseberry. Complex and balanced Sauvignon Blanc with tropical notes and a level of herbaceousness that adds interest without dominating.


Some hints of green apple. Textured mouth feel, with long lasting flavours and crisp, fresh acidity on the finish.

Winery Profile

"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.
