Overview

The Cabernet Franc grapes for this wine come from two vineyards in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. The fruit was picked at optimum ripeness, before resting on skins for 24 hours to obtain just the right amount of colour. Fermentation was conducted without the influence of oak to achieve a bright, aromatic Rosé with distinctive varietal flavour and character. The fermentation was then allowed to proceed almost to dry, retaining the clean fruit flavours and bright fresh finish.

Winery Tasting Notes

Rose petal red with pink & purple hues.

Aroma

Light spicy Cabernet Franc. Hints of blossom with some subtle white pepper spice and citrus fruits.

Palate

Fresh and bright on the palate, with raspberry, strawberry and citrus notes. Floral hints with undertones of spice and citrus zest. Youthful acid and fruit concentration provides great structure and length before a clean, fresh & dry finish.

Food Matching

On it’s own after a long day at work.

really have to.

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.
