Tim Adams The Fergus is a blend of Grenache, Tempranillo and Malbec.
The Fergus is named after their neighbour who was good enough to sell them his Grenache grapes in the vintage of 1993, during a desperate shortage of Shiraz and Cabernet.
This wine has lifted red strawberry and cherry aromas and flavours of Tempranillo. This is backed with spiciness from Grenache and mid palate richness with plum and violet characters coming from Malbec. Ageing in older French oak hogsheads adds subtle, integrated perfume and toasted characters.
Tim Adams The Fergus is a luscious mouth filling wine with silky tannin that with careful cellaring may be kept for up to 15-20 years.
