"I think that Tim Adams shiraz has given me more pleasure over the years than almost any other Australian wine." Oz Clarke
"If you've ever met Tim Adams you'll know he has one of the firmest handshakes in the game. Big, powerful and full of grip, this wine is the reflective manifestation of that gesture. A hedonist’s red of booze-soaked forest berries, plum, hazelnut whiffs and choc-mint elements. The palate doused in similar flavours, rippling along at fuller weight with a building tug of fine, silty tannins. Potent, yet balanced and long, with a fresh-ish finish. Works well." James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
Limey, lemony, pink grapefruity and very thirst quenching and refreshing. It's a great example of a simple, but very pleasing, classic regional expression that hits the high notes of citrusy freshness alongside minerally elements and floral lift. Drinkability is high, it's pure feeling and vibrant. It ticks a lot of boxes while flying the classic Clare riesling banner high. Righteous stuff.
""I often think of The Aberfeldy as the Clare Valley's Grange. Aside from the fact that it's from a single region and much less than one tenth of the price. It's a flagship wine that's easy enough to enjoy now, or much later. Blackberry, dark cherry, cloves, sage, coconut, dark mint chocolate, spice - it's all go. Full-bodied, lush smooth tannin, silky feel with rich fruit, backed with toasty spiced oak." Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
