About

The story of Brad Hickey (AKA Brash Higgins) and his love affair with the Australian wine scene may have panned out very differently had he and partner Nicole not stumbled across the Omensetter Vineyard in 2007. This vineyard is now the base of operations for this adventurous wine label, and also, unsurprisingly the source for their flagship wine. The wine produced from Omensetter in 2012 is a blend of 85% Shiraz and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. It lazed away in French oak for three years prior to bottling and a further two years sleeping in its (seriously heavy duty) bottle prior to general release. This is a tip of the cap to Chris Ringland's influence on Brad, and if you know Ringland's wines, you know where this is going. This is a powerhouse wine. As Mike Bennie put it, "Powerful stuff, well meshed, long and serious feeling. Legacy making stuff." - 94 points. A blockbuster with showstopping presence built for cellaring and special occasions.

What it Tastes Like

"Brooding, dark fruited, intense wine. Old spice cupboard, leather, meat drippings, dark chocolate, dark berry fruit character, warm spice, walnut shell oak character in full flight. Full frontal perfume. Intensity in the palate, charry oak and spice woven through slippery, rich, dark fruit character. Sluice of warm, black fruit, more dark chocolate even into tannin profile, that finishes with graphite intensity. Powerful stuff, well meshed, long and serious feeling. Legacy making stuff." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
