DESCRIPTION
  • Produced largely from the hundred-year-old Shiraz vines of the Clare vineyard of the same name, Tim Adams 'Aberfeldy' Shiraz is consistently a benchmark example of Clare Valley Shiraz. The 2013 Aberfeldy again displays great depth and length of flavour, showing vibrant red-berry and violet flavours, with well-integrated oak providing incredible complexity. It’s a bold but elegant Clare Valley Shiraz that will continue to flourish for many years. 

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    A dry year in 2013 meant that yields were a little down, but flavour was concentrated and intense. Red wines are full bodied, yet elegant at the same time.

    TASTING NOTES

    The Aberfeldy has vibrant magenta colour with aromatics of cherry, plum, dark berries and chocolate complemented by the oak derived characters of clove, nutmeg and vanilla. The palate is full bodied with dark berry conserve flavours, balanced oak and firm tannin generated from a dry, low yielding vintage. The wine has persistent length of sweet fruit and oak, with power, elegance and great finesse.

  • REVIEWS

    'There's nothing shy about this structured and dense wine but neither is it brash. Yes there's an abundance of American oak flavour and texture as the style dictates, but the stuffing includes dark plums, molasses, dark chocolate and herbs. It's glossy with the powerful velvety tannins taking the full-bodied palate for a ride. Enjoy the trip.'

    'Deepish red to brick-red colour with traces of purple, the bouquet is earthy and pepperminty with eucalyptus traces. It's medium to full-bodied and lean-ish, with firm tannins and grip, some sappiness and astringency, and it needs more time. There's a touch of coarseness, which age could soften. A biggie.'
