2021 Brash Higgins CHN - chenin blanc - McLaren Vale, SARegular price $44.00
Oodles of flavour in this Chenin Blanc, some time on skins, some time in old oak. Rich and delightful is the opening, there are wonderful aromas of ginger and tamarind, apricots and citrus. Combining this with great acidity and rich flavour there is nothing left but to reach for another glass. Texture and flavour all competing for attention.
If you like Chenin why not try this? If you've never tried Chenin...why not try this?
"Chenin Blanc from McLaren Vale, fermented wild, matured in wood.
Colour and cloudiness, straw and nuts. This wine is wild with flavour. Citrus, saline, honey and handfuls of nuts. Lots of zip but lots of give/texture/flavour. Food-friendly and sit-and-ponder friendly. Dry and grippy on the finish, an attractive squeakiness there, and no shortage of length. It’s a ripper, really. It’s varietal but we are also in the presence of difference."
