Mr. Riggs Yacca Paddock Tempranillo 12pk 2017
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 Yacca Paddock Tempranillo 2017
Tempranillo from the Adelaide Hills.
Alcohol warmth but its floral and red berried dynamics keep it lively and bright. It’s deep but bouncy. Tar, red licorice, spice, earth and those sweet florals. It’s tasty. It works well.
