The Hesketh family has always followed the path less travelled by. This ethos leads us to create a selection of vineyard specific wines, ranging from classic Australian regional/varietal combinations, through to cutting edge varietals to surprise and delight. Each wine is made in a house style which reflects the family’s passion for wine, understanding of wine quality and over ninety years combined experience, both working with wine and imbibing the fruits of our labour.

Region: South Australia
Aroma: Lifted delicate nose with fresh lemon zest from the Chardonnay and strawberries and cream from the Pinot Noir.
Palate: The palate is fruit driven and fresh, with added layers of cream and softness from malolactic fermentation and time on tirage lees.
