Brash Higgins | NDV 2018

Mclaren Vale, South Australia

“Dark ruby in colour, with hints of lavender, nori, vermouth and stem ginger. Orange peel also present, reminiscent of an Old Fashioned cocktail, angostura bitters and all. A pomegranate, bright dark raspberry and morello cherry mid-palate balanced by a refreshing sweet and sour red cherry acidity. The wine finishes with fine grained, chain link tannins as well as some savouriness. Decanting is always recommended for amphora wines” – Brad Hickey, Vinitor, Nov 11, 2019

Grape Growing
The first to graft Nero d’Avola in McLaren Vale to their organic estate Omensetter Vineyard in 2009, this eighth vintage of the drought tolerant Sicilian varietal was picked at 13 Baume in 2018 to maintain vibrancy.

Wine Making
The transparency of the Nero d’Avola grape was preserved by using gentle, ancient techniques and naturally occurring wild yeasts. The grapes were destemmed then fermented and aged on skins for six months in locally made 200L bees-wax lined clay amphoras.
