Brash Higgins 2016 R/SM White (McLaren Vale)

Editors' Choice

Brad Hickey's wild fermented and unusual field blend of Riesling and Semillon has been a solid offering since he launched his McLaren Vale label. Tasting it with a bit of age shows how remarkably it holds up in the bottle. Open and expressive, it has mellowed to a pale honey color and billows notes of nuts, honeycomb, blossoms, fresh ginger and a distinctly “Brash” mineral note of sunbaked clay and stones. In the mouth, flavors take a back seat to texture, which washes over the tongue, lifted by bright acidity. A long, concentrated, spicy finish closes things out slowly and deliciously.
