Mr. Riggs The Gaffer Shiraz
Now back to earth with the 2007 Mr. Riggs The Gaffer Shiraz. This is a well made, straight forward Shiraz from McLaren Vale. The fruit is bright and fresh and the wine is harmoneous, although slightly high in alcohol (15%). The finish shows the right amount of tannin and reasonable length. Nothing pretentious in this wine, but a winter wine, good with hearty food (I am in Canberra at present).
