This is fabulously rich and generous yet graceful and refined, showing Black Doris plum, blueberry, anise and toasted almond characters on the nose with a touch of pepper spice. It’s ripe, plump and smooth on the palate, displaying both power and elegance, beautifully framed by fine grainy tannins. At its best: now to 2028.

Deep, dense red/purple colour. Rich oaky fruit-cakey aromas, coconut and raisins, chocolate and Christmas pudding. The tannins are gritty and firm, and slightly bitter in a pleasant way. Good concentration and persistence. Value for money is extreme.

Pure McLaren Vale across its velour of maritime freshness and gentle, assuaging tannins, soldered to black fruits flavours, orange zest, anise and cured meats. The Mr Riggs range, particularly the reds, seems softer, poised and more eminently drinkable than in years gone by. Better tannin management all 'round. Kudos!

Ned Goodwin, 2020

Grapes for the 2017 The Gaffer Shiraz have been sourced from five key vineyards in McLaren Vale; Martins, Gateway, John Rivers, Tim Hunts and Ben Riggs’ Piebald Gully Vineyard.

Since 2006 The Gaffer Shiraz has unapologetically worn its pink cap in acknowledgement of our partnership with the Flinders Foundation and their fight against cancer. Mr. Riggs Wine Co. has proudly donated $145,000 towards cancer research through proceeds of the sales of The Gaffer.

The Gaffer Shiraz is a testament to the best of McLaren Vale. A medium weight Shiraz, the style of The Gaffer is soft, flavoursome, and fruit driven.
