Brash Higgins CHN Chenin Blanc 2017

Grown in the white sands of Blewitt Springs. Kept on skins for several days before being pressed to barrel for wild ferment and 12 months maturation.  255 Cases made. The evocative label is a photo of ballerinas from the Australian Ballet Company by Kate Longley.

Brash Higgins, CHN, Chenin Blanc, McLaren Vale, 2017

Like no other Chenin in the land it has hallmarks some of the old, aged Vouvray’s I’ve been lucky enough to try, yet maintains freshness and brightness. Apple, honey, radish, barley sugar and fresh hay bales. Vibrant acidity cutting through a soft, yet textural wonderland with a salted lemonade like finish. I can imagine this will polarise some drinkers, but gets the points for uniqueness and intrigue.
