Mr. Riggs 2013 ‘The Truant’ and 2012 ‘Three Corner Jack’

25-Nov-2014
The Mr. Riggs label is experienced McLaren Vale winemaker Ben Riggs’ bottlings of wines of selected varieties from specific regions made to the style that he personally prefers to drink: big, rich and complex. Here, I review ‘The Truant’ Shiraz 2013, a tribute to Ben’s ancestor John William Riggs who wagged school to work, and the ‘Three Corner Jack’ 2012, a blend of Shiraz, Cbernet and Merlot, named after a three-spiked prickle "that sticks to you” as does the wine. www.mrriggs.com.au The wines are distributed by Federal Merchants. www.federalmerchants.co.nz
