About The Wine

Brash Higgins (AKA Brad Hickey) is at it again, dropping conventions and vowels all over the place.

He loves to make wines that challenge peoples perceptions, and if there is one white variety out there with a bad wrap, it might be Aussie Chenin Blanc.

This is not your run of the mill Chenin.

It is fermented in old oak after a few days on skins, then left to its own devices for 9 months before seeing a bottle.

Hickey is trying to wring every ounce of character out of this fruit, and he’s done a damn fine job. Mike Bennie closed his recount of the wine with this, “It’s refreshing, it’s wild, it’s curious. It’s fun, but it will be challenging for some, but that’s ok.”

Funked up and (as is standard issue for all the Brash wines) a little left of centre, this will charm the pants off a curious drinker.

What It Tastes Like

Masipam and honey, soft glossy palate with some nuts and a side of toast. Ginger and lemongrass, some apples in the mix. Decent length through the palate. Really interesting and chewy expression. Feels like lots of lees work/some skins. Nicely play, Brad.
