The Limestone Coast Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant, lifted style of wine displaying juicy, moreish black-fruit notes and bouncy acidity. Oak is used discreetly for fermentation and maturation, to accentuate the freshness of the blend.
The Hesketh Art Series wines represent the best of our home state, South Australia – one of the most celebrated and diverse growing regions in the world. Grapes for these wines are grown only in premium dry-grown sub regions of the Limestone Coast which are best suited to each wine style. The wines are then blended before bottling to a fresh, fruit driven style which is perfect for everyday drinking – or more salubrious occasions.
Fruit for our Twist of Fate Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Jack Kay’s Bool Lagoon vineyard situated in the Limestone Coast region. The terra rossa soils and cool climate of this area make it a perfect location for growing flavoursome Cabernet. Following harvest in early April, the fruit was fermented in stainless steel open fermenters for 7 days. Malolactic fermentation was also completed in stainless steel to retain freshness and aromatics. The blend was then barrelled down to 1st fill and older French barriques and hogsheads for 9 months maturation prior to bottling.
