Hesketh's take on Puglia's heat and drought-resistant Negroamaro grape is soft, easygoing and accessible. Black raspberries mingle with dried tarragon while ageing in seasoned French oak hogsheads lends a suggestion of sweet spice. Drink 2019-2021

      Tasting Notes
      A new, exciting and dynamic range of wines here at JN.

      The Hesketh Wine Company is a small, family owned producer of high quality, yet accessible wines. We work with our own growers and process our own wines like traditional wineries. But rather than attempt to be all things to all people from one region, our approach is to remain focused on the individual strengths of different South Australian growing regions.

      The Small Parcels range is dedicated to creativity. They allows winemaker Phil Lehmann to explore more exotic grape varieties, or to bottle special individual parcels from each vintage which might otherwise be blended away.

      An ancient variety; Negroamaro has been associated with the area of Puglia in southern Italy for over 1,500 years. Renowned for being an intensely dark skinned grape, the Greek and Latin translation of the name literally means ‘blackest of the black’.

      Appearance: Dark purple with a lilac rim.

      Aroma: Complex and aromatic nose – sweet dried herbs, aniseed, raspberry and a touch of earth.

      Palate: A juicy and well-balanced palate showing an array of vibrant flavours, all coming together in harmony. Fine tannins lead into a moreish finish.

      Summary: A lovely light-to-medium bodied aromatic summer red wine. Plenty of interest from the fresh fruit notes, lively acidity and touch of vanilla sweetness.

      "This is a very, very seductive style, crystallised fruits dipped in dark chocolate, but held in restraint by the modest alcohol. Good length too."
