    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.”

    Far from a wine of terroir, this is an ode to Australia’s traditional path to
    recognition: seemless, invisible regional blends. After all, Coonawarra is
    doyen of cabernet; McLaren Vale, a very warm climatic expression of
    shiraz. As a blend, they deliver the best of both worlds; choc-mint
    after-dnner notes of Coonawarra, laden with some directive astringency;
    the salubrious brood of McLaren Vale’s darker fruited turf, tidied up
    with lashings of vanillin oak.

    Dense and succulent, offering a terrific mix of savory, sandalwood,
    mineral, loam and rosemary details that mingle with plump blackberry
    and plum flavors, showing touches of Kalamata olive and black licorice.
    All of the power is wrapped up in velvety tannins. Long finish. Shiraz and
    Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2034.
