About This Wine

To honour Ricky Ponting's test player number 366, winemaker Ben Riggs crafted a pinnacle Australian blend of McLaren Vale Shiraz and Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. The Shiraz comes from Ben's own vineyard in McLaren Vale, with the Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from Weatherall Vineyards in Coonawarra. 

Ben's own vineyard in Piebald Gully is within the cooler part of McLaren Vale; Clarendon. This vineyard has deep sand over clay and being in the northern part of the region generally ripens earlier. The Weatherall site posesses a variation of soil from red-brown clay loam and sand loam over limestone, which consistently produces excellent Cabernet Sauvignon. 

This wine is 85% Shiraz, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and was fermented in traditional open top fermenters. Finishing fermentation in oak which was 80/20 French/American oak (of which 35% was new). The vineyard parcels were kept seperate till blending took place a few months ahead of bottling. Maturation in barrel took place over 2 years.
