“If you want to grab a good priced quality Shiraz, look no further than this South Aussie gem. Why buy it? Well as the winemaker says on the back of the bottle; 'because it tastes good'...”

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark cherry red with bright purple hues.

Aroma

Dark berry fruits, mocha, vanilla, cedar and coffee with hints of dried herbs.

Palate

Generous and ripe, but with a seam of spicy elegance which has been retained by not allowing the fruit to over ripen. Hints of vanilla from the American oak complements with dark chocolate and spicy licorice on the finish. Primary fruit and oak flavours are balanced neatly with natural acidity to provide restraint and elegance to the persistent finish.

Food Matching

Roast Lamb. Steak. Pizza

5 to 8 years.

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.
