Tim Adams Grenache Blend Clare Valley the Fergus 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Our fifteenth release of The Fergus is named after our neighbour who was good enough to sell us his Grenache grapes in the vintage of 1993, during a desperate shortage of Shiraz and Cabernet. We quickly realized that a wine born from logistics had real potential as a full-bodied, but soft style with immediate food compatibility. The wine has lifted red berry aromas and flavours, complexed by grenache spiciness and given extra back palate astringency by the blending of other more tannic red varieties. It is a mouth-filling wine that may be kept for up to 10 years, but will go nicely with duck, turkey, lamb and gamey meats any time soon.
