Brash Higgins CHN Chenin Blanc 2018

Fruit for the Brash Higgins CHN Chenin Blanc is sourced from Dr Grantley Gill’s Willamba Hill vineyard, in the Blewitt Springs subregion of McLaren Vale. This vineyard was planted in 1991 at a density of around 400 vines per hectare on predominantly white sandy soils, and is farmed sustainably. The grapes were harvested by hand and macerated on their skins for two days prior to pressing. Fermentation took place using indigenous yeasts in old, neutral ex-white burgundy barrels and the wine was left to age on its lees for twelve months, before being bottled without fining. Flavours of citrus, honey, apples and straw dominate, whilst the lees ageing gives a succulent texture to the palate. The Chenin’s natural acidity is perfectly complemented by a delicate saline streak that runs through to the finish.
