Hesketh Ebenezer Grenache
This special release is made to not only embody the Barossa Valley, but to reflect the unique characteristics of the Ebenezer sub region. The Grenache vines of the Barossa Valley are some of the oldest in the world, and we celebrate their existence with this bright, fresh, fruit driven take on the variety. The grapes for this wine are sourced from several different vineyards across the Ebenezer region in the Barossa Valley. From two of our growers, the Hampel and the Schiller family sites, and also from our own Barossa Vineyard.
Hesketh Vulturedog Shiraz Tempranillo
A deep purple, vibrant with red hues and a purple rim expressing aromas of plush fruits, cream, strawberries, raspberries, with some hints of spice and star anise. The oak is integrated nicely. A palate of pepper, spice, fresh juicy red and purple fruits, tight structure and good length. Good weight on the mid palate.
Hesketh Hippocrocopig Cabernet Mataro Aragonez
A deep red with purple magenta hues and a red rim proffering aromas of mocha, Christmas spice and vibrant florals, pomegranate, tomato leaf, spearmint and fresh red fruits. A palate of strawberry, sorbet and juicy red fruits with clean acid lines and fine structure. Medium length with some spice, very drinkable.
Hesketh Porcupotamus Pinot Noir Shiraz
A dark red core with maroon hues and silver rim proferring aromas of spice, rhubarb, tobacco, red berry fruits and thyme. A light and bouncy palate with fresh, soft red fruits. Pinot like mouthfeel with cherry and raspberry, nice acid lines and fine tannins on the finish.
Hesketh Small Parcels Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon
A deep crimson core with purple rim and aroma of dark cherries, cassis, rich cedar and lovely lifted herbs. A medium-bodied palate of powerful fruits of the forest flavours, earthy notes of green leaf and lingering dusty tannins.
