TIM ADAMS The Aberfeldy Shiraz, Clare Valley 2010

The intensely perfumed and muscular Aberfeldy Shiraz reflects the character of vineyard site as much as the personality of winemaker Tim Adams. The 1.6 hectare Aberfeldy Vineyard comprises a large proportion of dry grown colonial vine stock planted by Wendouree's Alfred Percy Birks in 1904. Vinification takes place in closed top fermenters followed by 24 months maturation in new American oak. The rich, buoyant and spicy Aberfeldy Shiraz is a deeply concentrated opulent style with blackberry aromas, malty, cedary oak and a firm tannin kick.

Region Clare Valley

The Clare Valley

The Clare Valley is located two hours north of Adelaide in the Mount Lofty ranges. The region was settled by John Horrocks who encouraged his servant James Green to plant the first vines in 1842. Climate in the Clare Valley is continental with hot summers, cold winters and low rainfall that necessitates supplementary irrigation. Soils in the valley are predominantly red brown loams over shale, permitting excellent drainage. Many of the best vineyards are located at higher elevations of 400-500m on sites that take advantage of the cool breezes that funnel up the corrugation of hills from the south. The Clare Valley is renowned for its zesty fruit-pure Rieslings particularly from the sub-regions of Polish Hill and Watervale. The region also produces intense age-worthy sturdy reds from Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

Winery TIM ADAMS

Tim Adams, with his wife Pam Goldsack, established their winery in 1986 following Tim’s early career with Stanley Leasingham, first as a cellar hand and then eventually as a winemaker. The winery is located near Wendouree, towards the northern edge of the Clare Valley. Tim Adams has a number of vineyard holdings dotted throughout the Clare Valley planted to Riesling, Semillon, Pinot Gris, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Tempranillo. Best known for the brooding age-worthy The Aberfeldy Shiraz, Tim Adams also makes a range of compelling wines exhibiting clear varietal purity and Clare Valley typicity.
