Brash Higgins “ZBO” Zibibbo Australian Wines

£22.50

The resulting wine is intensely aromatic, with notes of apricots, elderflowers and honey on the nose. This suggestion of sweetness, however, is false and on the palate, the wine is bone dry, with a bold tannic grip from the skin contact.

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.

Vineyard

The grapes are sourced from the highly regarded Ricca Terra Farms in the Riverland, whose sustainably farmed seventy-five-year-old bush vines are planted on red ironstone soils.

Winery

After hand harvesting, the grapes were destemmed into 200-litre beeswax-lined clay amphorae to ferment using only wild yeast. The wine was left in contact with the skins for 180 days, before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
