Winemaker Rob Summers’ fresh, lively wines convey the extraordinary place from where they were grown. He came to Hester Creek in 1996, lured by the potential of the Valley, and the estate vineyard. The Golden Mile Bench of alluvial sand and gravel is located above the valley floor. Rob notes, "The soil, the climate, the light . . . together they give rise to that intangible magic we call terroir. It’s my goal to make wines that are approachable, but not simple; that are enjoyed by many, and still appreciated by those with discerning palates." Enjoy before 2020 and serve at 8C.
Golden sunshine hue, with light green reflections.
"Subtle nose, very clean, with some wet stone minerality and light floral notes." - Craig Pinhey from Wine Align.
In the winery, things are kept things simple with a light pneumatic pressing and long cool fermentation that allow the wine to retain balanced acidity and fresh crispness. From GIsmondi on Wine, "The Hester Creek style is always on the richer softer side, forsaking the super bright cleansing acidity for rounder, juicier, rich ripe fruit.
Best with creamy pastas, chicken salads and or fresh cheeses.
