The Oddbins Take

Rigg's Shiraz was a miscreant in his youth. Riggs would point to his French cousin Syrah, a model student, who had already had his dissertation published on the influence of Rhone wines on the Avignon Papacy. Meanwhile, Shiraz was busy bunking off school to go surf and getting off with Viognier behind the bike sheds. Riggs is a patient winemaker, however and gave Shiraz the love and support that all vines need, understanding that Shiraz's talent might lay outside traditional academia. It turns out, all that time truanting out in the hot Aussie sun gave this Maclaren Vale Shiraz a vibrant dark fruit profile with an astonishing structure. The final wine expresses an intense blackberry & bramble character combining with notes of cocoa, coffee and liquorice. Clearly, some develop better outside the classroom.
