About

The Brash Higgins CBSV is grown on the Omensetter vineyard, tended by Brad and Nicole, in their home of McLaren Vale. This is McLaren Vale Cabernet with some spunk and personality. It spends 15 months in new and used oak, it's un-tinkered with by Brad on its way to bottle giving a fleshy yet vital rendition of the variety from this part of the world. A high quality yet low-yielding vintage for Cabernet in 2015, "The ideal 2015 vintage yielded excellent, full flavoured and balanced fruit, but minute quantities, producing a very limited parcel of 160 cases" according to Brad. With 93 points from Mike Bennie, Brash Higgins fans, or fans of McLaren Vale reds in general, will simply love this release.

What it Tastes Like

"Lots going on in the bouquet with blueberry, currants, liquorice, salt bush and dark chocolate. Juiciness here, warm mulberry, a sheath of fine tannins, crisp acidity, lots of lingering fruit and spice flavour, so vibrant, plenty of the DNA of cabernet but in a more jolly way, but not without tannin and architecture. Bigger boned, compelling stuff." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
