The Fergus


Grenache grapes, left in the vineyard to fully mature, were crushed on to fermented and drained skins of Tempranillo. Fermentation lasted one week. The tanks were then topped and closed for another week for extended maceration prior to pressing off skins. A significant amount of Tempranillo and Malbec were added for added complexity and fruit expression. The wines were then racked, filtered and transferred to a mixture of older American and French oak hogsheads. The wine remained in oak for 24 months before blending, filtration and bottling. It has been sealed under screwcap for freshness and authenticity.

Tim Adams makes some of the best and best-value wines from the Clare Valley. There is a distinctive individuality about the wines, and no more so than The Fergus. This is a delightfully friendly blend of Grenache, Tempranillo and Malbec. The influence of the Tempranillo is profound, while the base of Grenache provides that lifted rose petal perfume. It is not a big wine and has lovely elegant medium weight that makes it so appealing. 91/100.
