2012 Brash Higgins “GR/M”. McLaren Vale. 14.5%

Blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Mataro that was co-fermented.

Rounded palate. A giving wine that is drinking well now. The Mataro component really shines in this. Spicy! With a bit of air, this wine really knits together and hums along. Soft, juicy and harmonious. Found it hard to sit down and write a proper note as I was too busy enjoying this. Juicy, gluggable, tasty red wine. No alcohol heat on the palate.

A joy.
