British Columbia’s newest entry in the critter label derby, the Rigamarole brand has caused something of a stir, both inside the industry and with consumers. The wine is attributed to a winery that doesn’t physically exist – Rigamarole Winery, C/O Artisan Wine Co. in Oliver, B.C. In fact, it is made for (and almost certainly by) the Mission Hill winery. Mission Hill has a track record for making provocative brands that bring new consumers into the market. A few years ago, it authored a brand called Rotting Grape that was all the rage with the 20-somethings.The concept is expressed thus by the producer: “Why is it always such a big Rigamarole to simply find a great drinking red?” And the wine comes with three different labels. One shows an elephant, another a dancing rhinoceros and the third gibra. The latter also does not exist physically but might if a giraffe and a zebra could mate.So what about the wine? A very agreeable quaffer with soft tannins, flavours of cherries and raspberries and lots of white pepper, from the aroma right through to the finish. 86 points.I awarded an equal score to its stable mate, Rigamarole White 2006, a refreshing and fruity summer white, also selling for $15.99.
