A region is stamped by its own characteristics and sensibility. When it comes to making wine, regional traits manifest themselves distinctively through aroma, palette, texture and body. Showcasing these marvellous regional traits is what this Mr. Riggs range is all about. Ben Riggs intends to match iconic region with iconic varietal in a game of winemaking harmony. And he’s even willing to step outside McLaren Vale to test the terroirs of Watervale and Coonawarra.
