Tim Adams Shiraz 2010

Clare Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    13.7%
In 2009 The Observer Magazine UK named Tim Adams 'Winery Of The Year' describing his wines as "consistently great". Somewhat remarkably, Tim Adams has still managed to maintain a relatively low profile in Australia, whilst continuing to produce some of the Clare Valley's finest wines.

This newly released 2010 Tim Adams Shiraz is bright magenta in colour, with aromas and flavours of red-berry conserve. The palate is full and soft in front and middle, with flavour of small berry fruit and again the oak complimenting the fruit. The finish is medium firm with tannins coming from both fruit and oak. This terrific Tim Adams Shiraz delivers power and finesse which makes it both approachable now and worth keeping for up to 10 years.

"During the export boom, Tim Adams sourced this mouth-watering shiraz from four Clare Valley vineyards - Irelands, Bayes, Rogers and Senecas, the first three owned by Adams and his wife, Pam Goldsack, the third belonging to Pat Seneca. The fruit from these vineyards was clearly sensational in the 2010 vintage, as the wine is simply saturated with juicy, ripe, plummy varietal flavours. It's round and gentle, but layered with soft tannins. While it may age well for a decade - there's certainly enough fruit flavour there to suggest so - it's so joyously fruity right now it's hard to imagine it ever being a better drink."- Chris Shanahan, Canberra Times.

"92 Points. Tim Adams Shiraz spends 24 months in American oak, most of it second and third use. It’s one of Australia’s most reliable reds. This release is right in the groove. Rich, fruit-driven, awash with velvety tannin and generous in all respects. Plums, earth, bright cherries, mint and choc-vanilla. Orange juice acidity. You know what you going to get and it delivers and then some. Impeccable. Alcohol: 13.7% Price: $29 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2014 - 2022" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

This blend of local vineyards has produced a wine with both regional and varietal definition. The wine has bright magenta colour with aromas and flavours of violet, blackberry and mulberry and complexity given by 24 months American oak maturation. The palate is full and soft in front and middle, with flavour of small berry fruit and again the oak complementing the fruit. The finish is medium firm with tannins coming from both fruit and oak.

This wine has power and finesse which makes it both approachable now and wor- thy of keeping for up to 10 years in good conditions. The wine has not been cold stabi- lised and so may form a harmless crystalline deposit in the bottle necessitating decanting before serving. Sealed under screw cap for freshness and authenticity.

All components of this blend were fermented on skins to dryness before being pressed, with all pressings returned to the wine. The wine spent 24 months on a mix of one and two year old American oak barrels in our cool room before blending, fining, filtering and bottling in December 2011.
