2014 Mr Riggs Shiraz

$42.99 Bottle
  • Cellar 6 - 8 years (2023-2025)
  • ABV 14.5%
  • Closure: Diam Cork

Produced from a blend of two great McLaren Vale Shiraz vineyards; Piebald Gully and Gateway. Piebald Gully is situated in the coolest sub-region of McLaren Vale, bordering the Adelaide Hills. Its planted in deep sand over at the base of Willunga foothills and is virtually dry grown. Gateway Vineyard, so called as it stands just at the entrance to McLaren Vale, is located in the subregion of Seaview. The vines grow on top of a rather unusual amount of limestone rock and has views of the Gulf of St Vincent and the Adelaide Hills. Components from both vineyards were fermented in traditional open fermenters, and following pressing, finished their fermentation in oak of which approximately 80% was French and the balance American, 35% of which was new oak. Vineyard parcels were kept separate during fermentation and maturation with blending taking place three months prior to bottling.

Ben Riggs has crafted another McLaren Vale classic that combines power and richness with plenty of underlying muscle.

Magnificent depth of colour displaying a superb saturated inky black core with a very deep dark red black hue. Powerful ripe black cherry, liquorice, blackberry and subtle dark chocolate aromas rise through the olfactory senses followed by scents of vanillin cedar, traces or earthy black olive and spice. Full bodied, rich and concentrated with plenty of underlying muscle, the palate is flooded with ripe blackberry, liquorice and black cherry flavours which carry their way over a back drop of toasty vanillin cedar, subtle earthy black olive infusions and spicy blackpepper. An opulent mouthfeel largely conceals a robust framework of ripe tannins. Outstanding length with a long succulent ripe blackberry, liquorice, earthy dark chocolate, lightly toasted vanillin cedar and spicy blackpepper aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years.
Alc. 14.5%
