It’s wholly delicious, wonderful in its lean, brisk and incredibly fresh-feeling and slightly savoury nature. Totally great.
About The Wine
The NYMPH has undergone a facelift this year - no longer a crisp blend of aromatic whites, this year vintner Brad Hickey has his first swing at a Rosé and hits it straight out of the park.
This is Cinsault and and Carignan from a neighbour's block in McLaren Vale. Texture and acidity deftly woven throughout the wine by Hickey, it's a Rosé with a little more under the hood.
Mike Bennie loved the first release calling it, "a stellar Rosé" and the wine is absolutely worth the praise.
Minute quantities available and all but sold out at Cellar Door. Jump while you can.
About Brash Higgins
Brash Higgins is the label of winemaking American-turned-honorary-Aussie, Brad Hickey.
In his former life, Hickey was one of America's top sommeliers, working for many years crafting some of New York's finest wine lists. He came to Australia and fell in love with McLaren Vale and local vigneron Nicole Thorpe, with whom he now produces highly characterful, minimalist wines from their much loved Omensetter vineyard.
Hickey's wines are extremely expressive. They fall in two camps - the wines sourced from Omensetter vineyard and those sourced from friends around the Vale and the warm, dry Riverlands.
If you want 'classic' McLaren Vale, or if you want the true avant-garde, it's all available in the Brash Higgins range.
