About

A McLaren Vale producer's range would not be complete without a Shiraz, and Brad Hickey’s (AKA Brash Higgins) does not disappoint. The fruit for his ‘SHZ’ was hand selected from the Omensetter vineyard in the Vale, a vineyard renowned for producing a distinctively savoury style of Shiraz. The fruit was basket pressed into French Hogsheads for 12 months and aged for a further 12 months in bottle before being unleashed onto the world. 2013 in McLaren Vale lent itself to making powerful and spicy styles of Shiraz, a vintage that played right into Brad's hands. A wine of balance, finesse and sheer class, this is exactly what we have come to expect from this up and coming icon of the area. With only 295 cases produced and the previous vintage picking up 95 points from James Halliday, this will sell out fast so get in while you can, you will be thrilled by every single glass!

What it Tastes Like

A more savoury and refined style for McLaren Vale Shiraz. There is the succulent black fruits and blood plums often found around these parts but the distinctive black olive and herbal characters add another level to its interest. The fine, savoury tannins sit well in the mouth coated by juicy yet restrained fruit. There is spice and meat and berries and a whole lot going on but it’s never noisy, it's just enjoyable. First rate Shiraz.
