Made by the talented Ben Riggs, balanced with spicy and smoky notes and gentle use of oak and soft easy going tannins. It would take Sherlock Holmes to detect the Viognier in this wine, unlike many others the addition is truly subtle and not an overkill.

'While Canberra vignerons enthuse more over the 2013 vintage than the cooler 2012 season, McLaren Vale winemaker Ben Riggs writes, 2012 is likely to be one of the better South Australian vintages of recent times. He goes on, McLaren Vale was a particularly lucky candidate, with a wet winter and relatively mild-to-warm summer and autumn over the ripening period, culminating in top-notch fruit. The quality of the fruit shows in Riggs The Gaffer. It’s ripe, fruity, savoury and generous, but not at all heavy. That generous mid-palate and savoury, dry tannins give it a special McLaren Vale thumbprint, loved by so many red drinkers.' - Sunday Canberra Times, 31 Aug 2014, by Chris Shanahan.
