Made from grapes grown in McLaren Vale and Coonawarra, this compelling rendition shows gloriously attractive aromas of black/blueberry, plum jam, cedary wood and cake spice with a subtle accent of violet. The palate is concentrated and opulent, delivering layers of rich texture and seamless mouthfeel, superbly enhanced by outstanding depth and intensity. It is lavish and delicious, while remaining properly structured for graceful development.

This, says Ben Riggs, is ‘my icon wine', a blend of 55% McLaren Vale shiraz and 45% Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon, the parcels open-fermented and kept separate for 2 years in oak (80% French, 20% American, 35% new), a barrel selection made 3 months before bottling. This is unashamedly full-bodied, and needs another 10 years for the rich black fruits and ripe tannins to soften and fully mesh. As a matter of interest, 2.7g/l of residual sugar is part of the picture.

Using great fruit from McLaren Vale and Coonawarra Vineyards, The Chap is Ben Riggs’ interpretation of classic blending traditions. Tailor-made to each vintage, this wine is bespoke, well-cut and and is an homage to past blending masters.
