Tim Adams The Aberfeldy Shiraz 2012

Tim Adams The Aberfeldy Shiraz 2012

'Aberfeldy' Shiraz  Langton’s Classification VI:  Excellent

"94 points"  "I often think of The Aberfeldy as being like the Clare Valley’s Grange. Aside from the fact that it’s from a single region, and much less than one tenth of the price.  It’s a flagship wine that’s easy enough to enjoy now, or much later. (...)."  Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, Oct '15

"94 points"  "One for the cellars.  Has supreme depth and carriage of flavour, grooves of tannin, supple finish.  Stains the palate with its powerful, inky, dark fruit and dried fruit spice.  Oak gives structure and more depth.  A rich, potent wine of balance and magnitude."   Mike Bennie, WBM, Jan '16

World Wine – Langton’s Classification VI: Excellent. The intensely-perfumed and muscular Aberfeldy Shiraz reflects the character of vineyard site as much as the personality of winemaker Tim Adams. The 1.6 hectare Aberfeldy Vineyard includes a large proportion of dry-grown, colonial vine stock planted by Wendouree’s Alfred Percy Birks in 1904. This ancient genetic material produces large berries and very high seed content. Vinification takes place in closed fermenters and is followed by 24 months maturation in new American oak. The rich, buoyant and spicy Aberfeldy Shiraz is a deeply-concentrated, opulent style with blackberry aromas, malty/cedary oak and a firm tannin kick. The under-lying muscularity of structure is reminiscent of the Wendouree style.
