Ben Riggs, one of the stars of Australian
wine, searches out South Australia’s cooler
corners to fashion this vibrant Shiraz.
What You Need To Know
Elegance is not a word that springs
to mind first when it comes to $15 Australian Shiraz, but that’s
exactly what supertalented winemaker Ben Riggs aims for.
The pursuit of balanced—not bombastic—wine means that Riggs
spends an awful lot of time canvassing regions across South
Australia (an area three times the size of Italy). For his Shoofly
Shiraz, Riggs blended fruit from McLaren Vale (a zone freshened
by breezes off the Gulf St. Vincent), nearby Langhorne Creek and
the cool Clare Valley. The result is a fruity, rich red that’s also
spicy and lively—even, you might say, elegant.
There’s a whiff of
orange zest along with
plummy red fruit.
Supple and generous,
with bold plum notes
and a spicy finish.
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
With foods as boldly flavored
as the wine—sausages, grilled
and smoked meats; stews
