External Reviews for Mr. Riggs Shiraz Mclaren Vale the Gaffer
Glass-staining purple. Blackberry, licorice and smoky Indian spices on the nose. Juicy and lithe, with vibrant flavors of black fruits and cracked pepper. This energetic, tightly wound shiraz finishes with very good clarity and spicy persistence. This was aged in one-third new French oak but I dont sense it. Aged for 12 months in French oak, 30% new, the 2010 The Gaffer Shiraz has a very deep garnet-purple color and pronounced black fruits, black currant and mocha nose with hints of bacon, cinnamon stick and loam. Full bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it is well balanced by crisp acid and a medium level of velvety tannins, finishing long and savory. Drink it now to 2017.
