"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.
First class service.
Our family members score wines tasted out of a hundred. Fergus 2016 was given: 95 and 90 - son and wife, 88 and 63 myself and wife. Only wines we have had that scored more than this were considerably more expensive. So a good buy at £12.
We love The Fergus 2016. A really good wine for a reasonable price. Highly recommend it. Excellent service and delivery as well.
I have been drinking The Fergus for over a decade and can strongly recommend it.
As always, first class service from Tim Adams. Haven't tasted the wine - keeping to enjoy over Christmas.
