Cabernet Franc 'FRNC', Brash Higgins, Riverland, Australia 2022
Regular price £26.45
Brash Higgins is the alias of Brad Hickey, a Chicago native with a serious wanderlust, whose career as a sommelier and food writer has taken him all over the world. Having spent years talking about and selling wine, the next step in the journey was to make it, landing him in McLaren Vale to work a vintage. It was here that the wanderer finally settled, marrying local vigneron Nicole Thorpe, with whom he developed his eponymous label. Using grapes from their own organic Omensetter Vineyard as well as fruit sourced from like-minded growers, they have crafted a range of wines which allow Brash’s experimental nature and pure instinct for flavour to shine through.
Cabernet Franc 'FRNC' 2022
Combining dark berry flavours with Cabernet Franc’s distinctive capsicum notes, this is robust and well-structured, but the tannins are supple and rounded enough to give the wine a pleasing mouthfeel, whilst adding length to the finish.
