2013 Mr. Riggs Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This highly anticipated wine from Mr Riggs is a fuller-bodied style, and shows scents of ripe red and black berries on the nose, with whiffs of mocha, pepper spice and star anise. The palate is poised and sumptuous, with juicy dark fruit flavours, licks of coffee, chocolate and soy sauce, a solid line of tannins, and a rich spice and earth finish. A nice roast lamb leg would be great with this!

Winemaker's Notes

This is the twelfth release of Shiraz under the Mr. Riggs label, 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.

Alc/vol: 14.5%
