CHN 2019 - Brash Higgins
✔ 10% When purchasing 12 or more bottles
Brash Higgins (AKA Brad Hickey) is at it again, dropping conventions and consonants all over the place.
He loves to make wines that challenge people's perceptions, and if there is one white variety out there with a bad rap, it might be Aussie Chenin Blanc. But, this is not your run of the mill Chenin.
It is fermented in old oak after a few days on skins, then left to its own devices for 9 months before seeing a bottle. Hickey is trying to wring every ounce of character out of this fruit, and he's done a damn fine job.
Funked up and (as is standard issue for all the Brash wines) a little left of centre, this will charm the pants off a curious drinker.
Grapes from biodynamic farming, natural yeast and low added sulfites.
