"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

Description

Our twenty second release of The Fergus is 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.
We quickly realised that a wine born from logistics had real potential as a medium, but soft style with immediate food compatibility.
This wine has lifted red berry aromas and flavours of Tempranillo, spiciness from Grenache and mid palate richness with berry and violet characters coming from Malbec.
It is a luscious mouth filling wine that with careful cellaring may be kept for up to 10 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.

Food Pairing

This wine will pair nicely with duck, turkey, lamb and spicy dishes.
