About This Wine
Blood plum in hue, the nose of the Brash SHZ has black plums, chorizo, blood orange zest, spicy paprika, nutmeg and liquorice, and a sweet earthy note that is typical of Omensetter Vineyard's red clay. The palate is generous, well-balanced and smooth, the firm tannins integrated, and the finish long with complex, interweaving berry and spice notes.
The Wine Front – From Omensetter vineyard, and 2016 this was the first year as a certified organic vineyard. About 25% whole bunch in the ferment too. Typically bold flavoured but well balanced wines emerge from the variety from this site. I like the dichotomy in the Brash Higgins range between the wild-edged alt-wines and the McLaren Vale staples. Something for everyone. Scents of sweet ‘n’ herbal spice, touch of dried orange peel, amaro, sweet earth, but the main message is deep, dark forest berry fruitiness. Generous in the palate, stains with black berry, emery board tannins, earthiness, more peppery character. Generous McLaren Vale shiraz, finds excellent balance and a flourish of ample, lip-smacking flavour. This will be so good for those seeking bold flavour and some lushness in a red, but inherent drinkability. Nails it.
