The Wine

Our eighth Cabernet Franc, we skipped 2019, 100% grown from a neighbouring vineyard planted in 2001 and made at Brash HQ. Vintage 2022 provided top growing conditions with an even season punctuated by small berry set. Yields were quite low for this vineyard and we only made 180 cases. The idea for this FRNC was to focus on the aromatics and vibrancy of the fruit.

“A translucent violet in colour. The nose is lifted, aromatic, brooding with violet leaf, red and blue fruit, jalapeno and pencil shavings. There is roasted bell pepper, ashes, rose petals, mulberry; exactly what this vineyard smells like after a summer rain. Balanced and crisp, the wine has a bright, pure mouth feel and a long smooth finish with grip.”-Brad Hickey, Vinitor, January 10, 2023.

About the Wine Maker 

Brash Higgins produce minimal intervention wines, drawing on both natural and traditional techniques. They seek to capture the essence of McLaren Vale’s sun and soil, the elusive characters of the fruit, and the whims of their own restless muse. Brash Higgins is the lovechild of American winemaker Brad Hickey and McLaren Vale vigneron Nicole Thorpe. The wines are gently crafted in tiny quantities, with an accent on finesse and texture and are available for relaxed tastings by appointment.

Patience and gentle practices bring to life wines that possess the generosity for which McLaren Vale is renowned, and more importantly, texture, fragrance and a sense of wonder.
