Clare Valley Shiraz selected from our own premium vineyard sites has produced a wine with strong regional and varietal definition. This sophisticated yet elegant wine has a vibrant crimson hue with aromas and flavours of blackberry, mulberry and fresh cherries. Further complexity is built through 24 months of American oak maturation. The front and midpalate is full and soft, with flavours of small berry fruit and spice complemented by gently-toasted oak. The wine has great length, finishing with balanced oak and silky, structural tannin.
This graceful Clare Shiraz has power and finesse which makes it both approachable now and worthy of keeping for up to 10 years. We make our wines naturally and therefore this wine may form a harmless crystalline deposit, so we recommend decanting prior to serving.
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.
