Varietal: Shiraz (85% + 15% Cabernet)
Region: McLaren Vale, SA
Palate: The distinctive blood orange flavour profile of the shiraz together with the black tea and ferrous notes of the cabernet make perfect sense and taste sensational. A brooding intensity, yet still youthful and energetic.
Notes: 2015 Omensetter was aged over three years in two new 500L French Ermitage puncheons, before being allowed to mellow in bottle. The tradition of extended barrel ageing represents a stylistic tangent from the progressive wines for which Brash Higgins has become renowned, but imposed itself as the only approach for this grand, time-honoured Australian style of wine.
