“Tim Adams Shiraz has given me more pleasure over the years than almost any other Australian wine and while similarly fine Aussie reds seem to shoot up in price every time I think of buying a bottle, Tim Adams Shiraz barely seems to keep pace with inflation." Oz Clarke
"A full-bodied, savoury Shiraz that, despite its whopping 14.5% alcohol level, nevertheless feels well balanced. There is plenty of Clare Valley fruit - blackberry, mulberry and dark cherry - to savour and a lovely, earthy finish. A fine match with a rib-eye." Will Lyons (The Sunday Times 17/11/19)
Varieties - Shiraz
Our Clare Valley Shiraz selected from premium vineyard sites has produced a wine with strong regional and varietal definition. This sophisticated wine has a rich deep crimson hue with aromas and flavours of blackberry, mulberry and dark cherry. Further complexity is built through 24 months of American oak maturation. The front and mid-palate is full and soft, with flavours of small berry fruit and spice complemented by the oak. The wine finishes with integrated toasted oak and firm, structural tannin.
This elegant Clare Shiraz has power and finesse which makes it both approachable now and worthy of keeping for up to 10 years. The wine has been made naturally and may form a harmless crystalline deposit, so will benefit from decanting prior to serving.
All components of this blend were separately fermented on skins to dryness before pressing, with only selected softer pressings returned to the wine.
The wine spent 24 months in a combination of two and three year old American oak barrels and a further 9 months in stainless tanks before blending, fining, filtering and bottling.
Shiraz makes an excellent accompaniment to grilled steak and other red meat dishes.

Received earlier than date allocated! Brilliant price and service! Will definitely use again. Love Tim Adams wine!
This is drinking very well and seems the best release I've tried and excellent value.
Yet another smashing red from Tim Adams. We marvel at other commentators' capacity to either not drink it all once opened, or to keep it for a number of years. We find it too enjoyable to have the restraint for that!
....but better still if you can keep it a couple more years. The 2014 is on the go now and is a little less full-bodied but smoother. Brilliant quality for the price.
Must be the best ratio of quality/price on the market - and you can keep it for up to 10 more years (if you can!)
