Mr. Riggs Battle Axe Sparkling Shiraz 6pk NV
Winemaker Ben (Mr.) Riggs follows the philosophy “iconic wines from iconic regions”. Whether it’s McLaren Vale Shiraz, Coonawarra Cabernet, or Clare Valley Riesling, his wines are expressing the essence of the vineyard and variety in a style that is big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance. In Ben’s own words: “Think Ella Fitzgerald – bombastic and powerful with a huge vocal range, yet with purity of tone and a gentle sensibility when needed.”

Mr. Riggs Battle Axe Sparkling Shiraz NV
If you are in the market for a lighter style, but flavoursome, sparkling shiraz, this will fit the bill. It is well made, with good red and black fruits.
