Hesketh Wines

Midday Somewhere Shiraz

Made in a medium-bodied style, this wine shows bright primary fruit flavours with spice, and natural acidity. The nose is lifted and aromatic and when you sip, it exceeds expectations; so much so that you may find it hard to resist. And why would you? After all, it’s Midday Somewhere….

Miracle of miracles! A wine at this price that is not reductive. There is a God! Raspberry to black cherry fruits waft effortlessly, lifted by gentle lilac florals, soft tannins and a breeze of acidity. What’s not to like?

John Rozentals - Wine of the Week – 12/05/2020

My favourite from the range, this delicious red also hails from South Australia’s Limestone Coast. It has the expected dark-berry and spice flavours of shiraz plus it carries enough tannin to satisfy the commited red-wine lover. A great match for that rare char-grilled steak straight off the end-of-season barbie, or the rich stew we are just waiting to get our gums around.

Oh yes, these guys have been nailing some very handy little wines since bursting on to the scene a few years go. You might remember the name from a couple of years ago when it was best value wine. Well this one is another cracker. Sweet perfumed fruit with a touch of cedary oak. Harmonious and complete.

Ray Jordan - The Sunday Times – 01/04/2017

“Plenty of medium-weight plummy fruit, an edge of tannin and subtle integrated oak.”

Winsor Dobbin - Ciao Magazine – 01/07/2017

“The Art Series wines are the most affordable in the Hesketh range and offer quite remarkable value for money everyday drinking. Made by Phil Lehmann, a member of one of Australia’s leading wine families, this is a classic hearty and fruit-forward South Australian shiraz, largely unoaked, but bursting with dark fruit flavours and immediate drinkability. An excellent all-purpose young red that would pair with pizza, pasta or any red meat dish. The 2016 Wild at Heart Rosé in the same range is another standout.”

“Bright, youthful and inviting, the bouquet shows blackberry, raspberry coulis, mocha and mint chocolate aromas, followed by a flavoursome palate that is supple and smooth. It is fruit expressive and very easy on the palate, and offers plenty of juicy fruit flavours together with subtle spicy complexity.”

Ray Jordan's Best Value Red of 2016 – 01/12/2016

“One of the names to watch in Australian wines. This is made by third generation winemakers and it’s bloody good. In fact almost too good to be in this price category. There is a classy elegance and stylishness you don’t normally get at this price point. Light and delicious with great fruit concentration on a medium weight palate. ”

Huon Hooke - Hooked on Wine – 01/11/2015

“Medium to deep red/purple hue, with a bouquet that’s black plum and liquorice, with the beginnings of development but still accenting fruit. Good drinking, a value wine of real depth and strength.”
