This range is where the word “premium” sits very comfortably in a dark brown chesterfield armchair. These wines are Ben Riggs’s top-shelf expressions of McLaren Vale Shiraz. The provenance of the fruit is all McLaren Vale, predominantly from Mr. Riggs’ four finest vineyards: Ben’s own Piebald Gully, Paxton's (Gateway), Beal's (Monapilla Vineyard) and Joch Bosworth (Bradens). This range is the bees knees, the dog’s bollocks, it’s the top of the pops – if you look for anything higher than this premium range of Mr. Riggs’ McLaren Vale Shiraz, you’ll be disappointed. It does not exist.
