2018 Brash Higgins MCC
Brad Hickey first came to Australia in 2007 to work vintage with renowned SA winemaker Chris Ringland. It was here the Aussies bestowed the bright-eyed and brash New Yorker with the nickname Brash Higgins and where he met his partner and fellow vigneron Nicole Thorpe. Their 17-acre vineyard in South Australia’s McLaren Vale has been certified organic since 2017.

Ruby red with an attractive nose of pink peppercorn, cinnamon, cherries and roses, the MCC delivers wildness and perfume in equal measures. Sweet red fruit contrasts the spiciness on the palate and finishes clean, dry and focused with rose petal and cherry notes on the after breath. Good acidity keeps the wine bright and fresh faced, albeit rustic and food friendly
