Mr. Riggs

"The Gaffer" Shiraz is a testament to the best of McLaren Vale. Made with 30% new French oak, this wine shows excellent integration of Shiraz fruit with the gentle use of oak creating a big, rich, juicy, smooth style of red, finishing with elegance and spice. "The Gaffer" is a flavorsome, fruit-driven, full-bodied Shiraz that is well balanced and assured to please the palate.

Wine Advocate

The 2008 Shiraz The Gaffer which spent 12 months in a mix of new and used French oak. Dark ruby in color, this is a straightforward, fruity, easy to understand style of Shiraz with plenty of succulent blue and black fruit and good balance. Drink it over the next 6-8 years.

Score: 88. —Jay Miller, December 2009.

Wine Spectator

A light layer of tannins adds structure to this open-textured mouthful of plum and berry flavors, finishing on a savory note. Drink now through 2013. 3,000 cases made.

Score: 87. —Harvey Steiman, June 15, 2010.
