2015 Mr Riggs 'The Truant' Shiraz

Dense and opulent Shiraz from McLaren Vale

FWD Co. Panel f91

Description

This wine is a tribute to the family's forebear, John William Riggs who was fond of wagging school, eventually giving it up entirely to become a farmer. The grapes are sourced from McLaren Vale's best sites and get a very generous 30% new French Oak treatment.

Smells

Black currant, cinnamon spice, raisins, eucalypt and a hint of pepper.

Tastes

Dark, brooding and plush on the palate, the wine shows dark plums, blackcurrants, liquorice and chocolate. Plenty of guts though made in an approachable forward style, this wine will drink well until 2022.
