Tim Adams ‘The Fergus’ Grenache Tempranillo Malbec 2015

Tim Adams’ twenty second release of The Fergus is named after his neighbour who was good enough to sell him his Grenache grapes in the vintage of 1993, during a desperate shortage of Shiraz and Cabernet.  Tim quickly realised that a wine born from logistics had real potential as a medium, but soft style with immediate food compatibility.

This wine has lifted red berry aromas and flavours of Tempranillo, spiciness from Grenache and mid palate richness with berry and violet characters coming from Malbec.  It is a luscious mouth filling wine that with careful cellaring may be kept for up to 10 years.

“Tim Adams’ bargain blend is more characterful than ever with each varietal component lending its distinctive personality to the blend more articulately than ever.  The result is fragrant, exotically spicy, beautifully red-fruited and impeccably supported by vibrant acid line and finely poised tannins.  It’s holding magnificent freshness at four years of age and is set to live long.”
Tyson Stelzer, WBM, July/August 2019

“(…) attractive blue and red fruits…”

“A 41/39/20% blend of grenache, tempranillo and malbec with an upmarket modern label.  Light but bright colour; the wine starts off with attractive blue and red fruits, moving to black on the finish and aftertaste when black forest/blackberry flavours take over.”
Halliday Wine Companion Magazine, December 2019/January 2020
