Winner - Shiraz of the Year - Winestate Wine of the Year Awards
Mr. Riggs Scarce Earth Shiraz 2015 has won shiraz of the Year at the Winestate Wine of the Year Awards 2018.
Scarce Earth Shiraz has been one of Mr Riggs most highly reviewed wines this year and the Shiraz of the Year award is a fitting way to see out 2018. And when I talk about highly reviewed, I mean the wine scribes have loved this wine. "The palate is utterly gorgeous" says Lester Jesberg and Huon Hooke wrote "A marvellous, hedonistic shiraz.” And if you want a good price, you've got it - this is just $47.95 per bottle. There's just 45 dozen in Victoria...don't delay!
“A classic Vale shiraz offering blackberry, liquorice and very dark chocolate aromas with a caress of oak. The palate is utterly gorgeous, combining great length with beautifully polished tannins” 5 Stars from Lester Jesberg
“Very deep, bright red/purple colour. The bouquet is bright and intensely spicy, with lashings of char-oak aromas over nicely ripe black fruits. There is a delicious core of fruit sweetness surrounded by lashings of soft tannin, the whole thing very full-bodied but effortlessly balanced and lingering long on the farewell. A marvellous, hedonistic shiraz.”Gold Medal / 96 Points from Huon Hooke
“A strong, commanding wine with bulging muscles of tannin, and cherry-berry (dark) chocolate flavours in abundance. Diam-permitting, this will mature positively over a long period of time.”95 Points in the 2018 Halliday Wine Companion
