Jack Mann reigns eternal as the greatest winemaker in the history of the Australian west. Jack Mann's son Tony grew up amongst the vineyards of Houghton but took a keener interest in things Cricket. He exelled at both pursuits but is best remembered as the legendary leg spinner Tony Rocket Mann. During his off seasons away from the pitch, Tony would plant parcels of vine alongside his illustruious father Jack and his own young son Robert. The fully grown Robert now makes his own wine, from fruit of the very vines sown by Jack and Tony Mann. Robert learned from his grandfather that great winemaking required a spiritual oneness with nature. The birds and the bees play a pivotal role in achieving a harvest of the most personable grapes. The ultimate quality of the ferments are decided by the character of yeasts as they populate the vine. So content is Robert Mann with the elocution of his fruit, that he chooses to barely age his wines in a selection of the mellowest.. Whence the west was won»

Tim Adams Aberfeldy CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Clare South Australia
Excellent Langtons Classification. When the Birks of Wendouree settled Valley Clare in 1904, they planted their site to Shiraz. Many of these old vines remain productive and offer the backbone of fruit for the icon Tim Adams Aberfeldy. Younger rootings of the same clone yield grapes of the most intense colour, depth of flavour and refined tannins. The intense perfume and muscular nature of the finished wine reflects the character of site as much as the charm and personality of the animated and affable winemaker.

Sourced from the superlative Aberfeldy vineyard, owned by Jim McDowell and Anne Brown, a unique site of friable red loam over limestone, at the bottom of the eastern hills in Clare Valley, cropped to a mere 1½ tonnes per acre. Aberfeldy has long been synonymous with quality, the Tim Adams flagship wine. Year after year, Aberfeldy continues to deliver the finest construct of Clare Valley Shiraz. Parcels of fruit are fermented to dryness and kept on skins for a fortnight before pressing and returning. Components are treated to twenty four months in completely new French and American oak hogsheads under the Tim Adam cellars before assemblage, fining and filtration.
Vibrant magenta colour. Aromas of cherry and plum, dark berries and chocolate, complemented by oak derived cinnamon and clove, nutmeg and vanilla. The palate is full bodied with dark berry conserve flavours, balanced oak, tannin and acidity. Aberfeldy shows persistent sweet fruit and oak aftertaste, power and finesse.
