Mr. Riggs – Big Rich and Complex

03-Jul-2012
Ben Riggs is one of the McLaren Vale's top performing winemakers with 25 years of experience behind him. 14 years at Wirra Wirra, his role at the Galvanised Wine Group making Woop Woop, The Black Chook and Penny's Hill, as well as consultancy in the district and beyond has earned much respect. In 2001 he made his inaugural Mr. Riggs McLaren Vale Shiraz in a style that he enjoyed drinking – big, rich and complex – and it was a hit. Since then, he has expanded the range of styles and varieties, from special vineyard sites, but made to his personal preference specifications. Ben Riggs' plan is to turn out icon wines from icon regions, and it seems he is succeeding. The reds are very full, rich, ripe and extremely satisfying wines. www.mrriggs.com.au The wines are distributed in New Zealand by Federal Geo www.federalgeo.co.nz
