Mr Riggs Mclaren Vale Flagship Shiraz 2017
The Flagship Series is the crème de la crème of the Mr. Riggs portfolio and was the first wine Ben Riggs ever made under his current brand. 16 vintages later he continues to deliver a highly sought-after, great drinking red.
The wine is full flavoured with juicy dark red berries, hints of spice, earth, tar and leather, with seamlessly integrated oak. Mouthcoating tannins are apparent but not overwhelming, meaning this is a wine which can be enjoyed now or in the next 10-15 years.

“This is the distilled essence of McLaren Vale: full-bodied black fruits, dark chocolate, licorice and tar - and then a superb juicy finish that demands the next mouthful is tasted forthwith. Tannins and oak lend appropriate support.”
