|Varietal(s)||Riesling - Semillon|
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, basket pressed and co-fermented in old French barriques. These two varieties strike a remarkable balance and harmony.
This bright white wine has all the emerald exuberance of Riesling cut with the lemony flesh of Semillon. Great summer drinking, and a riot with oysters, we are proud that this wine tastes like a true coastal white; its origins a mere 20 km from the Gulf of St. Vincent.
Blistering release of this unique McLaren Vale white wine.
“Star bright in the glass, with moss, lemon zest, peach kernel, toasted grain and hybrid tea rose on the nose. Mouthwatering ocean breeze and a sappy, juicy abundance of fresh lime and white peach juiciness on the silken palate. The finish is transparent to a veritable carpet of mineral matter – albeit a levitating, vibrantly undulating one! Crushed stone, alkali, mineral salts and iodine combine with herbal and protein-rich flavours for something approximating a blend of oyster liquor and clam stock that set my salivary glands to palpitating.”- Brad Hickey, Vinitor, September 23, 2020
