Mr Riggs Montepulciano d'Adelaide 2017

McLaren Vale

  • Product details
    The Montepulciano fruit has been sourced from two different vineyards in the Adelaide region; Amadio vineyard, between Kersbrook and Williamstown in the Adelaide Hills, located at 300m altitude, it is also relatively low vigour and on grey-brown loam and Pollux vineyard situated in McLaren Vale, at 175m elevation on clay loam. The fruit ripens earlier, with much more tannin and lower acidity – all features that make it perfect as a severe dry red.
  • Tasting notes
    Bright violet and rich red roll around the glass opaque, vibrant, and alive with aromas of beef stock and crushed mint. Hints of cinnamon spice right through a palate that graduates to both sweet tobacco and the cigar-box that held it; the finish lingers with vanilla straight from the pod. Only serious structure can contain this kitchen of flavour and it does so spectacularly.

  • A seriously big and enticing varietal, Mr Riggs has found a more than worthy home for the Italian grape here in Australia
  • A firm structure contains this plethora of flavours perfectly, firm when necessary and delicate when needed - a very serious dry red
  • Ben was one of the first to produce Montepulciano in Australia, and this is a Monte that is true to style - rustic, moreish, savoury
