Mr Riggs Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Blazing purple-inky hue; it has all the regional flavours the variety can muster from cassis, ripe mulberries, mint chocolate to loads of rosemary (verging on too much unless a lamb roast is on the table). The full-bodied palate is firm, the tannins stern and while the oak imparts sweetness as much as tannins, this will benefit from cellaring. As always, great value.

Brambly red and blackberry aromas provide lovely lift to this muscular Cab. The fruit is underpinned by notes of mocha, spice, mint and pipe tobacco. The full figured palate is cinched with raspy tannins but there’s some nice fresh, juicy fruit and spice that balances and provides varietal character. Drink now–2027.

Winemaker Notes

The 2019 Coonawarra Cabernet is supplied from the Wetherall vineyards located in the heart of the Coonawarra wine region. Supplied from the “Thomas” vineyard and the “Harrison” vineyard both named after Michael and Michelle Weatherall’s children. The sites are located in the northern end of the region and are traditionally some of the earlier ripening blocks with low yields and excellent concentration. While yields were moderate, the slow, cool ripening was even, providing fruit with fine tannins and strong varietal flavors.
