    Winemaker Notes

    Deep ruby red with purple hues. Powerful dark berry fruits, mocha, cedar, dark chocolate and plums.

    Rich and ripe, with sweet blackberries combined with chocolate and licorice. Powerful fruit is balanced neatly with natural acidity to provide an element of restraint and elegance to the finish. Thinking man's Barossa Valley shiraz.

    Hesketh, Australia
    During a fleeting half century in the global wine community, the Hesketh family has always followed the path less travelled by. As a result our winemaking philosophy is somewhat different. We 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. Follow your own path. Eat well. Drink well.

    Barossa Valley Wine

    Barossa, Australia

    View all products

    Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in the Barossa zone of South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

    The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds.

    While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

    Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

    Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
