About

The Brash Higgins ‘FRNC’ is one of the trailblazing wines of its genre. In only its third vintage this wine has been at the forefront of the new wave of fresh and vibrant Cabernet Franc sweeping across the wine regions of Australia.

Brad wants this wine to “focus on the aromatics and delicacy of the fruit, making it an ease to drink but still complex, age worthy.” and he has achieved that unequivocally.

This small batch of fruit has made simply one of the most delicious and interesting wines of its ilk in the country. It sells out quicker every year, don’t miss out!

What It Tastes Like

“A translucent ruby/violet in colour. The nose is lifted, aromatic, complex with jalapeno chilli and a roasted, sweet charred green capsicum nose, like chilli rellenos from a Mexican bodega, violet leaf. There is pepper, cedar, meat, ashes, rose petals, earthy fragrances like piles of leaves in autumn, exactly what this vineyard smells like after a summer rain. Balanced, vibrant, medium bodied, the wine has a satiny, svelte mouth feel and a long smooth finish with grip.” - Brad Hickey (Vinitor)
