Evolving from the Scarce Earth project, our Burnt Block Shiraz is an expression of a single vineyard McLaren Vale Shiraz. Burnt Block Shiraz is sourced from Ben Riggs Piebald Gully vineyard, located in McLaren Vale's coolest sub-region, Clarendon. Onyx, and svelte, evocative, long, and intense, this keynote wine anchors an entire winemaking philosophy. Plums, molasses, violets and vibrant fruits funnel upward, lofty, swifting, and sensual.
The Battle Axe (my beautiful mother in law) is the motivation for this premium sparkling Shiraz. Traditionally made with mature premium McLaren Vale Shiraz aged in old oak, finished off with a touch of vintage fortified Shiraz.
This wine is luscious, dry, complex, balanced and versatile.
The initials J.F.R. (John Frederick Riggs) are for my late father, the reason I make wine.
The J.F.R. Shiraz is a blend of three premium McLaren Vale vineyards: Piebald Gully, Gateway Vineyard and Martins Vineyard. This is the eighteenth release of Shiraz under the Mr. Riggs label, pristine fruit with dark red berries, hints of spice, earth, and leather, with seamlessly integrated oak are the prime characteristics. Ripe tannins are apparent but not overwhelming, meaning this is a wine which can be enjoyed now or in the next 15 years.
