Brash Higgins - CINS Cinsault 2021
Region: McLaren Vale
Refreshing light bodied and vibrant McLaren Vale red. Brilliant ruby in hue and full of cherries, ginger, nutmeg and white pepper. Crunchy and well balanced with fresh natural acidity.
Made from a block of Cinsault vines which we grafted to a former Semillon patch at neighbouring Lennon Vineyard in 2013. Vinted from hand selected fruit and placed in an open 2 ton fermenter for 2 weeks. Wild yeast did their job and then it all was gently basket pressed and sent to veteran French hogsheads for 7 months. 2021 in the Vale is considered an ideal vintage with healthy yields and a long even season, resulting in balanced wines with finesse, brightness and deep flavours. This is the fifth vintage of CINS made at the Brash Higgins winery.
