Mr. Riggs Woodside Sauvignon Blanc 6pk 2020
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 Woodside Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Tapping into the Adelaide Hills’ regional pop-star variety, this has all the expected vibrant tropical fruit aromatics, passionfruit of course, with typical herbal extras, lantana bush and tomato leaf. It’s all aided by well-balanced acidity with mid-palate richness that adds some structure to the finish. Decent summer drinking.
