Mr. Riggs Montepulciano d'Adelaide 6pk 2019
Winemaker Ben (Mr.) Riggs follows the philosophy “iconic wines from iconic regions”. Whether it’s McLaren Vale Shiraz, Coonawarra Cabernet, or Clare Valley Riesling, his wines are expressing the essence of the vineyard and variety in a style that is big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance. In Ben’s own words: “Think Ella Fitzgerald – bombastic and powerful with a huge vocal range, yet with purity of tone and a gentle sensibility when needed.”

“A delicious drink, and one of the higher achievers in this class”
Predominantly Adelaide Hills-grown fruit from one of the earliest growers of this increasingly exciting variety. There's a captivating purity to this beautifully medium-weight wine, with lingering cherry cola-esque aromas and flavours. An even coat of tannins is balanced by prominent fruit. A delicious drink, and one of the higher achievers in this class.
Rating: 94 Points
