Brash Higgins CBSV Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The CBSV Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Brash Higgins’ own twenty-year-old organic Omensetter vineyard, planted on limestone and clay soils. The grapes were harvested by hand and then passed to open-top fermenters where they fermented using native yeast, with an eighteen day maceration period. Following this, the wine was passed to 300-litre French oak barrels, one of which was new and the rest between two and ten years-old, where it aged for fifteen months. A pleasing combination of savoury and earthy flavours alongside ripe, sweet fruit. Blackcurrant and plum give way to notes of bay, cinnamon and vanilla, whilst the chewy tannic backbone gives substance and structure.
