Reflections on 2011 and Ted Nugent

2011 has been a massive year for me. However, in many ways, each one of the years that preceeded it has led me to where I am right now, sitting at a desk in a hot office in McLaren Vale, South Australia enjoying one too many zooper dooper frozen ice treats. Brash Higgins Wine Co. Nugent
finally came into being this year after what seems like years of planning.  It's been a lifetime, actually. I've just bottled and labelled 2 new wines, which now brings us to 4 wines: a Grenache/Mataro co-ferment and my nero d'Avola fermented and aged in amphora.  Both wines look nice and I couldn't be happier with them. More on this in a bit, the Nuge is barely strapped in.
