Eden Valley Riesling

Produced by Hesketh
The Hesketh Wine Company is a small, family owned producer of high quality, yet accessible wines. They work with their own growers and process their own wines like traditional wineries. But rather than attempt to be all things to all people from one region, the approach is to remain focused on the individual strengths of different South Australian growing regions. Wines are made to a 'Hesketh' style, which is based on balance and complexity but more importantly, 'drinkability'. Wines with generous flavours and aromatics, which also retain a sense of place – wines which reflect the vineyards they are grown in
