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.”

    Mr. Riggs The Gaffer Shiraz 2017

    Pure McLaren Vale across its velour of maritime freshness and gentle, assuaging tannins, soldered to black fruits flavours, orange zest, anise and cured meats. The Mr Riggs range, particularly the reds, seems softer, poised and more eminently drinkable than in years gone by. Better tannin management all 'round. Kudos!

    Mr. Riggs The Gaffer Shiraz 2017

    Deep, dense red/purple colour. Rich oaky fruit-cakey aromas, coconut and raisins, chocolate and Christmas pudding. The tannins are gritty and firm, and slightly bitter in a pleasant way. Good concentration and persistence. Value for money is extreme.
