Vibrant and elegant, The Black Sparkling Shiraz NV is tank fermented under warmer conditions, creating a good balance between extracting appropriate tannin for structure and retaining natural fruit drive and aromatics. The result is a bright, full-bodied Sparkling Shiraz showing personality and character.
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.
