Mr. Riggs Wine Co. 'Mr. Riggs' Shiraz | McLaren Vale
Components of the Mr. Riggs Shiraz from all four 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, 40% of which was new oak. Vineyard parcels were kept separate during fermentation and maturation and were blended three months prior to bottling. This is the tenth release of Shiraz under the Mr. Riggs label, and in the Mr. Riggs McLaren Vale Shiraz mould, pristine fruit with dark red berries, hints of spice, earth, tar and leather, with seamlessly integrated oak are the prime characteristics. Ripe tannins are apparent but not overwhelming, meaning this is a wine which can be enjoyed now or in the next 10-15 years.
