Piebald Gully

This vineyard is Ben Riggs’s fourth child. Located in the sweet spot of Clarendon, a cool sub-region of McLaren Vale, Piebald Gully was planted by Ben in 1998 to a single cordon – some arch-pruned, some spur-pruned. Both are hand pruned and managed. Climate? At about 265m east of McLaren Vale, the area averages 30% more rainfall and ripens up to two weeks later than the rest of the district. Its cool factor is high, but Clarendon still enjoys the benefits of a Mediterranean climate – wild, wet winters and warm, dry summers. Piebald fruit is used in Mr. Riggs Shiraz and Shiraz Viognier blend
