About The Wine
The NYMPH is a crisp, edgy Rosé wine with a cheeky attitude.
This is Cinsault and Carignan from one of Brad Hickey's 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.
It's a livewire, a whip crack of a wine. It's tight, nervy and a shows a zesty, finish with a bitter amaro twist that drags you back to the glass. 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.
