The Bolter Shiraz

"The Bolter" - on the track 'a horse that is loose or out of control. In the betting ring' a horse at long odds. The Riggs family have long held a passion for horseracing with many shining stars amongst their ranks. Predictably this Shiraz is seriously good but what is not so predictable is the price. How do we do it? Quite simply, Ben Riggs and his winemaking team have a nose for sniffing out fine quality fruit, working their magic and here it is.

The Bolter Shiraz is sourced from a range of the best performing vineyards of South Australia's premium wine region McLaren Vale. Our central aim with The Bolter is to showcase the varietal strength of Shiraz, capturing its intensity and incredible depth of flavour. We have carefully selected individual vineyards from a range of sub-regions and climates to match style. This selectivity has given us the scope to maximise varietal character and deliver a wine that is powerfully lifted and generous in flavour.
