Varieties - Grenache, Tempranillo, Malbec
"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 Magazine
The twenty third release of The Fergus 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.
The wine has lifted red strawberry aromas and flavours of Tempranillo, with spiciness from Grenache and mid palate richness with dark berry and violet characters coming from Malbec. Ageing in older French oak hogsheads adds subtle yet integrated perfume and toasted characters. It is a luscious mouth filling wine with silky tannin that with careful cellaring may be kept for up to 15-20 years.Winemaking Notes
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 measured 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.
This wine will pair nicely with duck, turkey, lamb and spicy dishes.

Sampled this wine in Australia some years ago and since had tried a number of it’s vintages all of which have proved to be consistently excellent.
A nice wine and great communication with the order. Will definitely be using again.
