High-class heroism

Good as Tim Adams’ Aberfeldy Shiraz is, I think this is my favourite wine from him. I’ve aged earlier vintages for 10+ years and been impressed by the result. It is also a bundle of laughs to drink when young. It is a Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend.

The Fergus 2005, Tim Adams

Lovely, plummy fruit on the nose, with some spicy, peppery aromas. It is powerful and heady, but with a reasonably degree of harmony for a wine of this scale. When you smell this wine you cannot help but smile; lovely stuff, I tell you. The palate has ripe, with smooth tannins and lots of christmas cake fruit. It does have an impressive degress of complexity for a wine of this alcohol-level, it is not baked-free of character. At this stage in the evening this has the correct degree of power to keep me inetersted. Yummy, yummy.
