Mr. Riggs Piebald Syrah 12pk 2018
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.”
Mr. Riggs Piebald Syrah 2018
A fragrant and elegant shiraz reflecting all one can hope for with the Adelaide Hills hiding so many faces. This is a medium to full-bodied shiraz in a generous cross-ply of oak. The question has to be asked: is it too much?
