Mr Riggs Mclaren Vale Flagship Shiraz 2017

McLaren Vale

  • Product details
    Perhaps one of Australia’s most consistent wine growing regions, McLaren Vale enjoys a Mediterranean climate driven by dominant winter rainfall, low humidity, warm summers, and the moderating influence of the nearby Gulf St Vincent. Piebald Gully is situated in the coolest sub-region of McLaren Vale, bordering the Adelaide Hills. 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. This vineyard produces a richer and more fruit forward style of shiraz with excellent structure.
  • Tasting notes
    The wine is full flavoured with juicy dark red berries, hints of spice, earth, tar and leather, with seamlessly integrated oak. Mouthcoating tannins are apparent but not overwhelming, meaning this is a wine which can be enjoyed now or in the next 10-15 years.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday,

“This is the distilled essence of McLaren Vale: full-bodied black fruits, dark chocolate, licorice and tar - and then a superb juicy finish that demands the next mouthful is tasted forthwith. Tannins and oak lend appropriate support.”
