Brash Higgins GR/M Grenache Mataro 2018

The Brash Higgins GR/M is a red wine blend of Grenache (70%) and Mataro (30%), sourced from a biodynamically farmed vineyard in McLaren Vale’s Blewitt Springs sub region. Both the Grenache and Mataro grapes were harvested by hand on the same day, before being co-fermented in one-ton open-top fermenters. The Mataro goes in first as whole bunches and it is crushed by foot. The destemmed Grenache then follows on top. The ferment is then hand-plunged twice daily over a three-week period, before being pressed to seasoned French oak barrels for twelve months’ ageing. There is a seamless blend of the Grenache's cherry and red berry flavours alongside the Mataro’s darker, spicier notes. The palate is full and rich, with the tannins providing structure, whilst being soft enough to give a supple, elegant finish.
