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. 2022 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 sixth vintage of CINSAULT made at the Brash Higgins winery.

โ€˜Ruby in hue, the nose is black cherry starburst with notes of blood orange zest, ginger, nutmeg and white pepper. The palate is medium bodied, deep cherry/red fruit notes, well-balanced and vibrant and the finish is clean and refreshing; laden with interweaving cherry, ginger and white pepper notes.โ€™ โ€“ Brad Hickey, Vinitor, 23 July 2023.
