Mr. Riggs The Magnet Grenache 6pk 2016
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 Magnet Grenache 2016
A full-bodied, generously proportioned grenache with hints of Turkish delight, vanilla, fresh earth and dried herbs. It's a big, gutsy wine, loaded with character, and a good alternative to the paler, more pinot-like grenache styles.
