Region: Langhorne Creek, South Australia
Varieties: Cabernet sauvignon
Winemaker: Ben Riggs

Winemaker Ben Riggs sought to make the juiciest, smoothest style cabernet sauvignon he could to pay homage to Ricky Ponting's wine of choice at the close of play after his cricket matches. 

The grapes were destemmed and went into small open top fermenters. The wine was aged predominantly in 30% new French oak with a small proportion also being aged in American oak.

A collaboration between arguably Australia’s greatest sportsperson, Ricky Ponting and iconic Australian Winemaker Ben Riggs, Ponting Wines encapsulates the drive for excellence and perfectionism that both have demonstrated in their incredible careers.

Ponting wines also gives Ricky direct access to his favourite post game drink. Whilst his teammates were cracking open beers, Ricky was seen opening pinot noirs from his home state Tasmania or enjoying classics from South Australia. 

Each wine reflects Ricky’s life and has been carefully crafted by Ben to ensure flavour, structure and complexity are of the highest quality. Ponting Wines is a celebration of Ben and Ricky's commitment, dedication and achievements in their chosen crafts.
