Mr. Riggs “The Truant” Shiraz 750ml
The Mr. Riggs wines are the icon style wines from icon regions in Australia, made by Ben Riggs, winemaker at the Galvanized Wine Group. The style of the wines is what Ben personally enjoys, the reds being notably full, rich and ripe. The wines from the home growing region are particularly notable. ‘The Truant’ refers to forebear John William Riggs who wagged school to begin working for a living, but became a successful farmer. His signature, an ‘X' is pictured on the label.
This wine shows excellent integration of Shiraz fruit with the gentle use of oak creating a big, rich, juicy, smooth style of red, finishing with elegance and spice. “The Truant” is a flavoursome, fruit-driven, full-bodied Shiraz that is well balanced – a testament to the best of McLaren Vale
