  • ‘Pretty nose, floral and sweet-fruited. Notes of tar, orange peel, and spice from the Mataro co-mingles nicely with the lively, bright red fruited Grenache. Medium-bodied with dusty tannins and great acid, focus, and drive, the 19 GR/M strikes a nice counterbalance between the openly fruity nature of Grenache and the darker, more brooding nature of Mataro.’

The grapes come from Sangarra FstateYs Opper Blewitt Aands vineyard, in McLaren ValeYs Blewitt Springs subregion. This vineyard is farmed biodynamically and the forty’Nve’year’old Grenache and fifteen-year-old Mataro vines are planted on sandy soils over ironstone.

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 went in first as whole bunches and it was crushed by foot. The destemmed Grenache then followed on top. The ferment was then hand plunged twice daily over three weeks, before being pressed to seasoned liter French oak barrels for twelve months of aging.

A seamless blend of the cherry and red berry Eavours of Grenache with 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 Nnish

Brash Higgins is the alias of Brad Hickey, a Chicago native whose wanderlust took him around the world, developing a love of wine and food on the way. On returning to the United States he ended up in New York where following a stint as a food writer, he began crafting wine lists, eventually becoming the wine director for David Bouley’s Michelin-starred empire. Having spent years talking about and selling wine, the next step in the journey was to make it. This led him to leave the Big Apple to work a vintage in McLaren Vale where he was given his nickname by the locals, in honor of his larger-than-life personality and big city ways. It was here that the wanderer finally settled, marrying local vigneron Nicole Thorpe, with whom he developed his eponymous label using grapes grown on their own organic Omensetter Vineyard as well as fruit sourced from like-minded growers.

Brad’s lack of formal training has become an advantage, helping him to craft a range of wines that allow his experimental nature and pure instinct for flavor to shine through. Hickey’s love of travel is also reflected in the labels, with the abbreviated grape names mimicking the international airport codes which undoubtedly litter his well-traveled suitcases.
