Hesketh Wine Company Australia
Characterful, unique wines from the Hesketh family, one of the legendary dynasties of the Australian wine scene.
The Hesketh Wine Company is a small, family-owned producer of high quality, yet accessible wines. Working with their own growers and processing their own wines like traditional wineries. But rather than attempt to be all things to all people from one region, the approach is to remain focused on the individual strengths of different South Australian growing regions.
Specific vineyards – Each wine is either made from a single vineyard or sourced from a small selection of specific vineyards in each region. Fruit comes from both Hesketh's own vineyards in Coonawarra and the Barossa Valley, as well as from specialised local growers.
Winery – Hesketh wines are made at their facility in the Barossa Valley by house winemakers Phil Lehmann and Charlie Ormsby.
House style – Wines are made to a 'Hesketh' style, which is based on balance and complexity but more importantly, 'drinkability'. Wines with generous flavours and aromatics, but also retaining a sense of place – wines which reflect the vineyards they are grown in.
