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
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.
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.
If within three months of delivery, after trying a bottle or two, if for any reason you are not completely satisfied, we will collect the remainder and give you a FULL refund. That's our "no Quibble" Guarantee. You can't ask for more than that!

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.
A very nice win but I preferred it when it was 100% granache.
Lovely wine, delicious.
Fabulous service, ordered one morning, arrived the next day. Thank you Jackie for keeping me informed all the way. The Fergus is an old favourite and I'm thrilled to have found it again. The 2015 vintage is as good as any I can remember. I will be ordering some more very soon!
