Dark berry fruits, mocha, vanilla, cedar, coffee, dark cooking chocolate and dried herbs.

The Barossa Valley in South Australia is probably the most recognised and successful shiraz growing region in the world. Fruit for the 2008 Pathfinder is sourced from a single vineyard at the northern end of the picturesque valley, where it was picked at optimum ripeness to retain the full spectrum of Shiraz flavours and characteristics. The wine was fermented to dry then matured in American oak prior to bottling in October 2009.

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.
