Hesketh Midday Somewhere Shiraz 2022


This is truly stellar value. The fruit, from the Limestone Coast, saw time in seasoned French oak. Dark maroon in colour, the nose weaves through chocolate and blackcurrants with spices, a hint of mint and coffee beans. The wine is plush and very approachable now with red fruits also making their presence felt. Focused with fine but firm and expansive tannins, it shows impressive structure and really good length, over which the intensity never waivers. Generous now but should go ten years and amazing value. Makes you wonder, if these guys can offer a wine of this quality for this price, why would you ever pay more?
