Wine Press and Accolades

91 points – Tony Love - Top 100 Wines – Jul 2017

“While the label states South Australia, the cool climes of southern Coonawarra are directly responsible for such bargain-rated personality, proof too that the team behind it is employing some clever technique. There’s virtually no oak employed to start, which is even more impressive, allowing it’s fresh peachy flavours to dominate underpinned by genuine texture. Surprisingly well-shaped and a very honest buy. ”

3.5 stars – Tony Love - The Advertiser – Jun 2017

“While the label states South Australia, a bit of investigation reveals this hails from the cool climes of southern Coonawarra, and the fact it can turn up with such personality at this crazy price is proof that the team behind it is employing some clever technique. There’s virtually no oak employed to start, which is even more impressive, allow its fresh peachy flavours to dominate underpinned by genuine texture. Surprisingly well-shaped and a very honest buy. ”

90 Points – Tony Keys - The Key Report – Jun 2017

“Light but clean, defined chardonnay nose. Easy across the palate and easy on the pocket. For the price of three bottles of the Windowrie, four bottles of Hesketh can be bought, which makes it at $14 a very good buy. ”

90 Points – James Halliday - Wine Companion – Apr 2016

“20% fermented and briefly matured in new French barriques, the remainder in stainless steel. Sourced from Coonawarra, this is a surprise packet, with more intensity and focus than the region normally provides at any price, let alone this. Shouts from the rooftops about the value.”

Winsor Dobbin - Ciao Mag – Dec 2015

“Phil Lehmann is turning out some cracking little wines for this entry-level range of wine from the Hesketh family. This uses fruit sourced from Coonawarra and is on the bright, lively and fresh side of the white wine spectrum. The fun label sets the tone; it is a wine to be enjoyed over a warm weekend while still at its youthful peak. Match this with everything from a spicy chicken salad to a schnitzel and chips.”

Chris Shanahan - Good Food – Nov 2015

“Georgina Hart’s romantic label sets the tone for a bright, fresh chardonnay, with extra flavour and structure contributed be ageing about a fifth of the blend in new French-oak barriques. Marketer Jonathon Hesketh and winemaker Phil Lehmann write, “The wine is effectively used to season the new oak, which then goes on to its real job of ageing premium reds.” While the oak adds to the dimension of the aroma and flavour, fresh melon-like varietal character of the Coonawarra fruit gives the wine delicious, drink-now appeal.”

Paul Ippolito - 5 Min Wine Rush – Nov 2015

“Light breezy and easy drinking here. Lemony yellow, vibrant and youthful and lifted. A pleasant wine with attractive smooth fruit.Classic peach melon and light oak treatment and soft acidity are its hallmarks. Tastes like fruit driven Chardonnay and is a good stand alone Chardonnay to drink on its own. Lingering flavours and just right with a bowl of Crystal Bay prawns. 13%. About $12.”
