Fruit for this wine is sourced from the famous Polish Hill and Watervale sub-regions of the Clare. The warm days, long sunshine hours and cold nights provide ideal growing conditions for Riesling and this wine carries the unique Clare flavours of citrus zest, nettle and green apple. It’s got laser focus, a crunchy palate and a cracking finish.
In 1979 Robert Hesketh and Peter Lehmann started a small business called Masterson Wines. This fledgling company was celebrated for saving many growers during the 1980’s vine pull and went on to become the family winemaking dynasty of Peter Lehmann wines. Fast forward to the present day and Robert and Peter’s sons, Jonathon and Phil respectively, have joined forces in a new family business to create wines that are of a high quality yet remain accessible.
The wines, rather than being ‘all things to all people’ focus on the core strengths of the regions from which they come. The wines are wrapped up in the Hesketh ‘house style’ of balance, complexity and drinkability. These really are brilliantly made and delicious wines.
