Ben Riggs has been making wine under his namesake label since 2001, after an already extensive career making wine in McLaren Vale, and around the world. Riggs follows the philosophy “iconic wines from iconic regions”. Whether it’s McLaren Vale Shiraz, Coonawarra Cabernet, or Clare Valley Riesling, his wines are expressing the essence of the vineyard and variety in a style that is big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance. In Ben’s own words: “Think Ella Fitzgerald – bombastic and powerful with a huge vocal range, yet with purity of tone and a gentle sensibility when needed.”

Fermented in tank and barrel with wild and cultured yeast, no new oak. It's very complex in texture and structure, its savoury, citrussy green apple pith and skin making an emphatic statement that well made pinot gris can be a real wine of real quality, not just a hit and giggle lunch wine. Drink to: 2023; Price: $20.00; Date Tasted: Dec 2018; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Flinty green melon notes on the citrus nose with lovely lemon driven flavours perfectly balanced by a fine line of acid. Crunchy finish. Winestate
