With his Adeliade Hills Piebald Syrah Ben Riggs aim is produce a feminine cool climate Syrah using whole bunches that strives for fragrance, spice and elegance. He achieves his aim admirably with this beautifully crafted effort.

Rich, elegant and peppery.

Impenetrable black as night core with a deep dark red black hue. Elevated aromas of liquorice and black cherries meld into smoky vanillin cedar, traces of earthy graphite and blackpepper. Rich, lusciously textured blackberry, liquorice and black cherry flavours saturate the mouth with infusions of smoky vanillin cedar, light fennel and spicy blackpepper in hot pursuit. Outstanding intensity, richness and power with a medium to full bodied mouthfeel. Seamlessly integrated yet sturdy tannins provide the wine with its backbone and give it some grip on the finish. Long ripe black cherry, liquorice, smoky vanillin cedar, fennel and spicy blackpepper aftertaste.
Cellar 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews....
Beautifully balanced, perfumed and flavoured. The array of spices, the flush of fruit, the way tannin helps tease floral and spice notes out through the finish. Only just into medium-weight but good for it. Dry licorice characters in the background. Delicious. Drink by 2026.
