"Turbo-charged Aussie reds love barbecues, so tuck into this bargain beef, cedar and leather-scented 14.5 per cent hulk." Jane MacQuitty (The Times)
The Fergus is a legend - first produced in 1993 from neighbour Fergus Mahon's Grenache vineyard. The 2016 Fergus continues the lineage, predominately Grenache, with support roles by tempranillo,and malbec, all combining to form a spicy, juicy wine with lifted red berry aromas and flavours, grenache spiciness and given extra back palate firmness provided by the blending of the other varieties. It's medium weighted and superbly crafted to be a fantastic food partner, especially duck, lamb and gamey meats. Fergus will cellar patiently through to 2026 and beyond.
Delivery was fast and efficient, as always, and wine was good. All much enjoyed by my family
I was really looking forward to the Fergus as the comments were that it was something special. I was left, however, feeling somewhat underwhelmed and disappoionted with this when compared to the Tim Adams Shiraz which I bought at the same time and for the same price. For me it lacked any real body. Everyone has different tastes but I will stick with the Shiraz
As always, the wine is first class, and this time I'm going to keep some for a few years if I can! The delivery service os also fast and efficient.
Fast and efficient service form Craig and his team. The Fergus is a family favourite and always gives value for money. Plus the Tim Adams Botrytis Riesling is a real gem! I bought some for Christmas but it may not last that long.
This a very good value wine good depth
