Tim Adams Wines Clare Valley
This is a brilliant Clare Valley producer with marvellously consistent reds and whites of great depth and character. Aberfeldy, the top red, has a certain elegance as well as masses of fruit and American oak, in which it spends the best part of two years. The Fergus takes its name from a grower who first supplied the Grenache around which a little Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are now woven; at once complex and appealing, it has a deserved following. Adams was inspired by MUGA (Isaac Muga worked the vintage here) to experiment with Tempranillo and Muga would be proud of the plush but spicy outcome. Riesling and Sémillon both have excellent varietal definition and good structure; the just off dry but well balanced Pinot Gris shows bright pear and a hint of spice (it is part barrel fermented). Prices continue to be exemplary for the quality. Adams acquired substantial vineyard holdings from LEASINGHAM, so there is more to come from this established but progressive producers.
