There are few winemakers as predisposed as Ben Riggs, to appropriate the best parcels of McLaren Vale Shiraz, which are vinified alongside a component of superlative Langhorne Creek fruit, to achieve a juicy and textural, mouth filling wine. Riggs long and intimate association with McLaren Vale gives him a comprehensive knowledge of the most splendid sites and dedicated growers. A stylish construct of Shiraz with an alluring bouquet, layered complex palate and malleable tannins, Black Chook has gained fans across Australia and around the world.
A collaboration between Ben Riggs and Tony Parkinson of Penny’s Hill, Black Chook is the bigger sibling from the Woop Woop wineworks. The backbone of Shiraz is sourced from good vineyards in McLaren Vale, sites that are nourished by a Mediterranean climate, winter dominant rainfall, warm, dry summers and low humidity. Further components from choice vineyards along the Limestone Coast infuse the palate with exciting blackcurrant and eucalypt characters. Vinified in a combination of fermenters, a period of maceration on skins intensifies the colour and extracts sleek tannins. Maturation in a selection of fine oak barrels serves to soften and integrate the palate, developing velvety mouthfeel.
TASTING NOTES
Bright garnet colour. A plum and chocolate nose filled with hints of ripe berries and gentle spice. The palate is smooth and layered with rich flavours supported by supple vanilla oak and firm tannins, culminating in a long lingering finish of soft varietal plum and cherry characters, but not without the varietal punch of ground pepper and spice. A suitable accompaniement to flavourful braises and grilled meats.
