Wild take on Shiraz here. Dry, some tannin, pleasantly bitter.

Dark plums, macerated dark cherry, blood orange, liquorice and brown spices. While 14.9 it edges towards savoury in its style, nicely done.

Nariz: nariz funky (natty), cereza, ciruela, algo de pimienta. Con aire se va un poco del funk.

Boca: Tanino M/M+, Acidez M+, Alcohol M

Natty, no para todos los gustos.

This Brash Higgins stuff's pretty delicious. Different definitely. Savoury, deep fruited wines. A touch of VA coming through in this Shiraz, but it only adds complexity here. Fruit cake, plum, indian spices, meat, earth.

Note: Vinification that would draw out some frowns. Freaking 6 months on skin, letting some flor form on the surface post-ferment. I'm sure it's gnarly on it's way to the finish product, but it didn't turn out too bad. Probably a good dose of sulphur to clean it up? Or some skimming off the surface wine. Nevertheless, I liked it.

Always forget how much I like this one...third vintage tasted...always surprises with acid and character. Fruit shines, but a heaps of savory garrigue and whole bunch undertones.
