"Autumn And Summer At Once"

by Brash Higgins

The Brash Higgins 2012 NDV Nero d’Avola was released last week and gets Top Dog in The Wine Front by Campbell Mattinson, “Gorgeously perfumed wine. Spice and fruit, sweetness and savouriness. Autumn and summer at once. To taste – well, it’s more of the same, and a whole lot more. The long, insistent, chain-like aspect of the tannin here is quite something. Tar, aniseed, violets, twigs, gunsmoke. I can hear the ghost of John Lennon singing Nobody told me there’d be Australian wines like this. Bitter, complex, interesting finish. Effortless and yet jazzy with dynamic flavour. A wonderful McLaren Vale red.” Thank you, sir! www.winefront.com.au/category/top-wines/tip-top-tipple/#.UTV-S6VpuuM
