Hesketh Wines

Twist of Fate Cabernet Sauvignon

Fruit for our Twist of Fate Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from a selection of premium vineyards within the South Australian growing region. To accentuate the bright moreish fruit notes, and create a vibrant, aromatic style of wine, we have chosen to restrict the use of oak during fermentation.

Wine Press and Accolades

The Advertiser Online – Sep 2018

Whatever the trick is to pick and choose multiple parcels from a range of regions, then engage a clever winemaking magician to put together such an entertaining balancing act at bargain rates – well, whatever that is, bottle it. This is fleshy with lovely ripe, black fruits, easy on the tannins that can often invade the variety, keenly flavoured, mid weight in the palate dynamics and all round a terrific barbecue-friendly drink.

90 points – Sam Kim - Wine Orbit – May 2017

“It is beautifully fruited and fragrant on the nose showing black currant, blueberry, cigar and toasted almond characters, leading to a succulent palate that is generously fruited and smooth. The wine displays juicy fruit intensity and silky texture, nicely structured by fine, chalky tannins, finishing long and pleasingly dry.”

93 points – Tony Keys - The Key Report – May 2017

“Deep ruby colour and a clean nose of wood (not oak). Easy on the palate from start to finish, enjoyable, 93 points and cracking value at just $14. Hesketh ”

90 Points – Kim Brebach - BWU$20 – Mar 2016

“The picture series is Hesketh’s entry level, and always fair value. This Cabernet is a bit lighter and more elegant than some, more a pleasant bistro red than a serious wine but well done and easy on the gums.”

Chris Shanahan - 15 wines under $15 – Dec 2015

“Jonathon Hesketh and Phil Lehmann capture the spirit of cabernet in this bistro-style red from South Australia’s Fleurieu region. Though light in colour and made for current drinking, it offers particularly vibrant, lively cabernet aromas and flavours on a bright, buoyant, gently gripping palate.”

Paul Ippolito - 5 Min Wine Rush – Nov 2015

“Always impressed with the samples that come in from the Hesketh stable of wines. Good quality, well made and affordable wines, easy to pair with modern Australian cuisine and very quaffable to boot. This one also ticks all these boxes and more, being a classy Cabernet packed with berry and currant flavours, effortless oak, fine tannins, alcohol fine at 14% and good fresh acidity. At about $12, this is bargain drinking. Try it with an antipasto platter. Nice wine.”
