The bold, yet elegant 2016 Aberfeldy has a vibrant magenta hue with aromas of dark berries, cherry, plum and chocolate accompanied by clove, nutmeg and vanilla characters derived by the oak. The palate is full bodied with dark berry conserve flavours and firm tannin generated from the perfect growing season leading in to vintage. The wine has persistent length of sweet fruit and oak, with power, elegance and great finesse. The Aberfeldy is best enjoyed with red meat dishes with complementary sauces/gravies and can be kept for up to 20 years in good conditions. We recommend decanting, allowing at least one hour prior to serving for maximum enjoyment.
Synonymous with quality, our flagship wine has earnt and maintains a Langtons Classification of ‘Excellent’ and has been referred to as “Clare Valley’s Grange”.
Following an apprenticeship under the guidance of Mick Knappstein (Mr Mick) and winemaking positions at Leasingham and Quelltaler, Tim Adams and his wife Pam Goldsack established Tim Adams Wines in 1986.
Passionate about the Clare Valley, Tim and Pam source fruit from their own vineyards and those of excellent local growers from all areas of the valley. Led by the iconic Aberfeldy Shiraz, Tim Adams Wines focus their attention on
selecting Clare Valley grapes, for their authentic varietal and regional characters. These wines can be enjoyed in their youth for their vibrant fruit and fresh flavours, or be cellared for five to 15 years, depending on the wine.
