This McLaren Vale wine acknowledges 150 years of my family's rich farming heritage in South Australia and is named in honour of my great-great grandfather. John "The Gaffer" Riggs (1814-1902) arrived from Dorsetshire and settled in the Gawler region in 1855.
One of South Australia's best farmers, The Gaffer came to own hundreds of hectares given to quality wheat cropping. His sheep flock was highly regarded and his methods progressive. He enjoyed success at horitcultural exhibitions including medals in London, Paris and Sydney for his wheat.
I like to think my interest in the land and passion for its offering is directly attributable to my far-sighted ancestor.
A flavoursome, fruit-driven full-bodied Shiraz, The Gaffer is testament to the best of McLaren Vale and is assured to please the palate.
