Ben Riggs earned his reputation making
delicious wines by blending grapes from
across southeast Australia; this Shiraz
shows his talent with single-vineyard reds.
What You Need To Know
Although Australia’s Langhorne
Creek region doesn’t have the fame of its better-known neighbor,
McLaren Vale, winemakers like Ben Riggs have long relied on
the area’s grapes to create regional blends. Although he consults
for many wineries and helms his own successful brand, the
energetic Riggs found time to team up with a posse of winemaking
buddies in Langhorne Creek to create Zonte’s Footstep wines.
This Shiraz comes from a site whose name pays tribute to
Langhorne’s Lake Alexandrina. Its breezes refresh nearby vineyards
(and vintners) and are key to the grapes’ slow, even ripening.
