About

The ‘R/SM’ is Brash Higgins’ single vineyard “field blend” of two of the most underrated white varieties in the country, Riesling and Semillon.

The two varieties are dry grown side by side on a tiny vineyard in the foothills of McLaren Vale. Both varieties are picked on the same day (60% Semillon, 40% Riesling), basket pressed and co-fermented in old French barriques.

These two varieties strike a remarkable balance and harmony. “By far the best of the ferments we had in ‘16”, says Brad, “… little bit more Semillon this year, made same as previous years, but it’s a little richer due to bigger Semillon component.”

It’s a “Belter.” according to Mike Bennie and without a doubt, one of the best releases of this wine to date.

What It Tastes Like

“Beautiful perfume of lemon/lime, sea spray, just cracked honeycomb, ripe apple. Lots going on. Palate is stunning – hooked me with its oyster-milk-creamy texture and a bristle of crackling, green lime acidity underlying. Super length, super complexity, super delicious. Complex, stunning white. Belter.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
