Tim Adams Aberfeldy Shiraz

Tim Adam’s 21st Aberfeldy is the best wine this talented man has ever made. More than this, it is one of the finest red wines to bear the great name of the Clare Valley in the modern era. This is a stonking Aberfeldy that captures the depth and magnificence of an epic season, layered with all the savoury complexity that Tim Adams masterfully coaxes out of his beloved Clare. Its depth of succulent black plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit is tremendous, mesmerising, alluring. 100% new American oak dissolves into its generous folds in nuances of high cocoa dark chocolate. Fruit line and precision are rapturous and enduring, laced together with finely structured, well poised tannins. It will probably live very long, but I dare you to keep your hands off it. $45 at My Cellars.
