Hesketh Old Vine Barossa Shiraz 2017
The Hesketh family have a storied history in the industry and a long association with the Lehmann dynasty. Robert Hesketh originally formed Masterson wines with Peter Lehmann which saved plenty of Barossa growers during the vine pull scheme in the 80s. For many years Robert and Peter’s sons, Jonathon Hesketh and Phil Lehmann worked together running Hesketh Wines, Jonathon as owner, Phil as Chief Winemaker. These days Andrew (Ox) Hardy is the winemaker.
