Brash Higgins 2017 NDV Amphora Project Nero d'Avola (McLaren Vale)

Editors' Choice

This vintage of ex-pat American grower-winemaker Brad Hickey's Nero is on fire. Open and expressive, a heady concoction of cinnamon, flower stalk, potpourri, cocktail bitters, red licorice and stony minerals come wafting out of the glass, alongside red fruit and slightly meaty tones. The medium-bodied palate offers bright acidity that lifts the brambly fruit alongside savory, talc-textured tannins that are supportive but not overly clenching. Drink now–2027. Christina Pickard
