Brash Higgins 2020 ‘CJ/FUNK’ Amphora Rosé
Winery direct purchase only. Made from a blend of Chenin Blanc, Nero d’Avola and Zibibbo grapes fermented and aged in 200L clay vessels, this is our first amphora rose or light red. Named after two close friends that were married recently, CJ and FUNK, this wine was made to celebrate their love for each other and delicious, unusual and funky wines.
‘Watermelon garnet in appearance. The wine is dry yet exudes wild berry, hibiscus-tea, maraschino cherry and ginger aromatics. Fresh notes of cut ginger, dried cherries flow onto the palate; bright acidity and a savoury, powdery finish pulls the wine together on the close.’ – Brad Hickey, Vinitor, January 10, 2021.
