2017 THE TRUANT SHIRAZ

The Truant Shiraz is a tribute to John William Riggs, Ben Riggs’ great-great-grea-grandfather, and his colourful past. The Truant has as much character as the man himself.

It is a full flavoured McLaren Vale Shiraz, with notes of plum and blackberries, complimented by hints of vanilla and cinnamon spice.

Drink with good food and great company.

2018 THREE CORNER JACK SHIRAZ CABERNET MERLOT

The Three Corner Jack is the name of a three-spiked prickle that latches on and rarely lets go once its claws are attached. Prolific in the likes of McLaren Vale and South Australian regions. In Mr. Riggs’ world, the three-corner jack represents a blend of our region’s three finest grapes; Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This wine combines the rich, dark berry fruit and spice of Shiraz, with the elegant fruit and firm structure of Cabernet, all wrapped up in a velvety blanket of soft, plummy fruit from the Merlot component.

2016 MCLAREN VALE SHIRAZ 1.5L

The McLaren Vale Shiraz is a blend of two great McLaren Vale Shiraz vineyards: Piebald Gully and Gateway vineyard. This is the fifteenth release of the Shiraz under the Mr. Riggs label, pristine fruit with dark red berries, hints of spice, earth, 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.

2019 EIN RIESE RIESLING

The Ein Riese, German for “a giant”, is Ben’s version of a German style Riesling. Off-dry in style the fruit is taken from Yacca Paddock vineyard, situated in the Kuitpo region of the Adelaide Hills. The grapes where handpicked and whole bunch pressed. The end result is a delicate nose with floral notes and citrus blossom, with an enticing combination of sweetness, crispness and tang on the palate.

2018 COLD CHALK CHARDONNAY

As a young winemaker travelling the globe, the ‘Old World’ Chardonnays that Ben fell in love with in the 1980’s and were described as “like drinking cold chalk soup”, are the inspiration behind this Chardonnay. This wine has a naturally high acidity and is low in alcohol which aids in giving the wine it’s complexity. The aim for this Chardonnay is to show the complexity of the barrel fermentation characters rather than new oak characters. It demonstrates a flinty, steely edge and chalky mouth feel without compromising the purity of the fruit in both flavour and aroma.

2016 MRS. VIOGNIER

The Viognier fruit is from Ben’s own tenure at Piebald Gully, located in McLaren Vale’s coolest and wettest sub-region Clarendon, bordering the Adelaide Hills. This wine is a delicate, floral number that seduces you slowly, sip by sip. This is more of an elegant style Viognier compared to the norm. Typical floral apricots and waxy blossom characters abound, while a wonderfully complex integration of tropical fruit and honey suckle cross the palate.

2016 STICKY END VIOGNIER

The Sticky End Viognier is a supremely delicate ‘sticky’ with finese and elegance. It is inspired by the Italian Passito style, with less botrytis characteristics and more of a typical Viognier. It is a fresh, fragrant style with zest and taste of tangerine with a mouthfeel of marmalade. It is sticky to the end!

2017 THE GAFFER SHIRAZ

Grapes for the 2017 The Gaffer Shiraz have been sourced from five key vineyards in McLaren Vale; Martins, Gateway, John Rivers, Tim Hunts and Ben Riggs’ Piebald Gully Vineyard.

Since 2006 The Gaffer Shiraz has unapologetically worn its pink cap in acknowledgement of our partnership with the Flinders Foundation and their fight against cancer. Mr. Riggs Wine Co. has proudly donated $145,000 towards cancer research through proceeds of the sales of The Gaffer.

The Gaffer Shiraz is a testament to the best of McLaren Vale. A medium weight Shiraz, the style of The Gaffer is soft, flavoursome, and fruit driven.

2019 WATERVALE RIESLING

The Watervale Riesling is sourced from Clare Valley’s cooler sub-region Watervale. The wonderfully delicate nose carries lime oil and soft citrus blossom characters seamlessly to the palate. Mouth feel is abundant and vibrant. This is a crisp, tangy and delicate example of a Clare Valley Riesling.

2014 THE ELDER FORTIFIED SHIRAZ

The Elder is named after Ben Riggs late father. He was stubborn and oppinionated, but Ben respected him immensely. This Fortified Shiraz has Ben Riggs’ father’s backbone – solid, structured and present. It has style and elegance, like the great ports of the world. The wine is framed by its complex perfume driven by spicy, cool climate Shiraz, and ages low strength brandy spirit used in the fortification. Respect The Elder by cellaring it for up to 30 years, or drink now if you dare.

About us

Company details

Mr. Riggs Wine Co. was founded in 2001 as a collaboration between Ben Riggs (with decades of vintages at McLaren Vale’s Wirra Wirra under his belt) and his mentor Tony Parkinson. The winery is positioned at the premium end of the ladder, using Ben’s extensive contacts with growers to pick exceptional fruit from the Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and McLaren Vale.
 
In 2013 the demerger of the Galvanized Wine Group saw Ben strike out on his own at the helm of Mr. Riggs Wine Co. Ben relishes the freedom of being CEO and winemaker, to polish and perfect the wines in their exciting evolution.

Mr. Riggs winemaking philosophy is to make unpretentious wines that express the essence of the vineyard and the region’s terroir in a style that Ben enjoys drinking; big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance, the latter not necessarily being traits Ben possesses.
 
Mr. Riggs wines are stamped with Ben’s considerable European experience, as well as his unique vision for wines produced on his hallowed South Australian stomping ground.
