Mr Riggs Sanjo Sangiovese 2020
- Medium bodied
- Adelaide Hills
Sanjo...get it? It’s so very Australian to shorten a word at every opportunity. Sangiovese lends itself very well to that. Sang, Sangio, Sazza (maybe not?). The crew at Mr. Riggs have settled on Sanjo for their first ever bottling of the Italian variety. They source the grapes from a single vineyard in the Adelaide Hills and make a fruit-driven silky smooth wine to pair with a wide range of dishes. This medium-bodied wine sings of dark cherries and redcurrants, finishing with enough acid to work perfectly with pork, lamb and beef. Roasted veggies are a go as well if meat’s not your thing. So whether you’re having a sanga, a snag, a parma or a spag bol, this’ll work its magic perfectly.
We expect this wine to be ready to dispatch 6 may. Place your order as normal and we’ll dispatch it to you as soon as it arrives.
Halliday Wine Companion
“An ultra-fragrant array of raspberry, cherry and allspice scents, the palate living up to the promises of the bouquet with its sour-cherry base note sliding through to the finish and aftertaste.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
