Tim Adams Shiraz 2012

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 2012 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.

"For those seeking a bigger, but not too big, kind of SA red, Tim Adams Shiraz is invariably a rock solid choice. As is their Riesling, which is obviously not a red… Blackberry and cherries, nougat oak in the back, some mint chocolate too. Medium to full bodied, juicy acidity, silky tannin, berries and chocolaty flavour laid on pretty thick and smooth, then a finish that rolls with lacy tannin and perfumed oak and fruit. Spot on. Rated: 92 Points. Tasted: Dec14 Alcohol: 14.5% Price: $26 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2014 - 2022" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

"This blend of local vineyards has produced a wine with strong regional and varietal definition. The wine has a lively deep purple hue with aromas and flavours of violet, blackberry and mulberry. Further complexity is built through 22 months of American oak maturation. The palate is full and soft in the front and middle, with flavours of small berry fruit complemented by the oak. The wine finishes with moderate oak and fruit-derived tannins. This elegant Clare Shiraz has power and finesse which makes it both approachable now and worthy of keeping for up to 10 years." - Tim Adams.

Owner and winemaker, Tim Adams, began his career in the wine industry as a cellarhand at the Stanley Wine Company in 1975, steadily working his way through the ranks to become winemaker in 1981 following graduation. The first inclination to leave came in 1985, when Tim and his wife were approached by local cooper Bill Wray to form a partnership of the two families to make wine and small oak casks.

The first wines under the Adams & Wray label were released in September 1986, by which time Tim had left the Stanley Wine Company. In May 1987 the Adams & Wray partnership was dissolved, and Tim and his wife Pam took full control of the renamed Tim Adams Wines. In late 1987 they purchased the existing winery site and opened the cellar door in January 1988.
