  • ‘Cloudy and a diaphanous, pale copper in appearance. The wine is dry yet exudes tantalizing herbal, spice, and stone fruit aromas. A complex nose of apricot, graphite/pencil shavings, cut ginger, cloves, elderflower, white pepper, Belgian white ale, and wild honey leaps from the glass. On the palate, the wine has a soft entry but with a good grip, an earthy sweet chalk/clay element with notes of lemon oil, tangerines, tea, and cinnamon apples.

Brash Higgins is the alias of Brad Hickey, a Chicago native whose wanderlust took him around the world, developing a love of wine and food on the way. On returning to the United States he ended up in New York where following a stint as a food writer, he began crafting wine lists, eventually becoming the wine director for David Bouley’s Michelin-starred empire. Having spent years talking about and selling wine, the next step in the journey was to make it. This led him to leave the Big Apple to work a vintage in McLaren Vale where he was given his nickname by the locals, in honor of his larger-than-life personality and big city ways. It was here that the wanderer finally settled, marrying local vigneron Nicole Thorpe, with whom he developed his eponymous label using grapes grown on their own organic Omensetter Vineyard as well as fruit sourced from like-minded growers.

Brad’s lack of formal training has become an advantage, helping him to craft a range of wines that allow his experimental nature and pure instinct for flavor to shine through. Hickey’s love of travel is also reflected in the labels, with the abbreviated grape names mimicking the international airport codes which undoubtedly litter his well-traveled suitcases.
