BRASH HIGGINS - BLOOM

The 2015 BLOOM is the third incarnation since the original 2008 version. These wines are slowly aged white wines made in a style inspired by oxidative methods found in France’s Jura and Burgundy region. Here, McLaren Vale Chardonnay from the sandy Blewitt Springs sub-region has been matured for six and a half years in selected white Burgundy barrels, periodically adding some fresh white wine to feed the ‘flor.’ A healthy protective barrier of yeast on the wine’s surface starts to form. The last four years the barrels were turned on their side to prevent any tampering and to completely seal the bung air tight. No topping was done during this final ageing period. The bottled wine was aged an additional 12 months in Brash Higgin's cold cellar.
