Brash Higgins 2013 ‘SHZ’ Shiraz

SHZ_label

Made from 16 year old shiraz vines grown at the Omensetter Vineyard. Vinted from hand selected fruit, the grapes were destemmed and sent to open fermenters for 4 weeks then basket pressed and matured for one year in fine 1-4 year old French hogsheads and aged just over a year in bottle. 2013 in the Vale is considered a warm vintage; bolder wines with power and spice.

‘Blood plum in hue, the nose of the Brash 13 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.’ – Brad Hickey, Vinitor, 01 April 2015.
