...crisp, succulent and distinctly vibrant.
About the Wine
Brash Higgins came up with this wine after one of his fellow winemakers suggested he take whole bunch Cabernet Sauvignon, flood it with Nero d'Avola and let the concoction ferment.
He was both intrigued and haunted by this idea - so, a couple years later, he gave it a go and the Ripple was born.
It's a mouthwateringly juicy wine that's truly delightful to drink, and the smash factor is dialled way, way up. Only a small amount was produced, so you better get your hands on one tout de suit...
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.
