Fruit for this wine comes from the Currency Creek and McLaren Vale growing regions on the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. The moderate climate of both regions results in extended ripening periods for Cabernet Sauvignon which enhances flavour development. This translates into bright, aromatic Cabernet with distinctive varietal flavour and character.
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.
