Star Australian winemaker Ben Riggs made just four barrels of this fabulously crisp, minerally Chardonnay.
What You Need To Know
With its taut, fresh flavors, this is an Australian Chardonnay for people who think they don’t like Australian Chardonnay. It’s the work of Ben Riggs, who, as an in-demand consultant, is famous for his ability to craft overachieving wines in large quantities, like the terrific Woop Woop bottlings. For his own label, Riggs shrinks his focus to a few spectacular vineyards. From them, he fashions site-specific wines that reflect the place they’re grown. He sources this Chardonnay from a three-acre vineyard in the Adelaide Hills on Australia’s southeast coast. Riggs picked the grapes “just after the green, tart flavors disappeared” to achieve a vibrant white that evokes the site’s sea-chilled air.
