Winery Details

    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.”

Press Review

    Mr. Riggs The Gaffer Shiraz 2016

    Deep, dark colour and a rich, very ripe, gently oak-tinged bouquet. Lively, fresh acid palate, with blue and dark berry flavours. Straightforward but flavoursome, a big and bold good-value red for every day.

    Mr. Riggs The Gaffer Shiraz 2016

    A block of inky flavour. Fruit and oak, florals and spice. Volume is the main message. The finish is the wine’s weakest point but its strengths are quite something.

    Rating: 90 Points
