David Wynn introduced cardboard wine casks, flagons and the Airlesflo wine tap to the nation. He is best remembered for re packaging the Coonawarra estate which bears his name and which endures as one of Australia's icon brands. Wynn was a master of his craft and studied oenology at the world renowned Magill wineworks. An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden. Mountadam Vineyards were built from the ground up, with a view to crafting a limited range of well structured, weighty wines, defined by fuller palates and saline, mineral savouryness. The legacy of Eden Valley vineyards planted by Wynn in the 1960s & 1970s, incorporating significant old rootstock and extinct European clones, remains a bespoke choice for adherents of the abstruse, old guard in Australian..

Tim Adams The Fergus CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Tempranillo Malbec Clare South Australia
The Tim Adams label was born out of a venture to make small oak casks and limited amounts of wine. After three decades of consistently superb vintage releases, Adams is counted as one of the leading winemakers in Valley Clare. Fergus was a neighbour who was kind enough to sell his Grenache to Tim in 1993 during a desperate shortage. Tim quickly realized that what had been achieved through a serendipity of logistics was to have real potential as a full bodied, soft style with immediate approachability and splendid compatibility to good food.

A collation of harvests Tempranillo and Grenache, sourced from the Ladera, Sheoak and Mahons vineyards in Valley Clare, a choice parcel of Malbec is added for complexity. Grenache remains on the vine until fully mature, grapes are harvested late and crushed on to batches of drained Tempranillo skins for a week of vinification. The fermenters are topped and closed for another week prior to pressing. Components are racked several times before filtration and transfer to seasoned French and American oak hogsheads for an extravagant two years. Components are assembled and bottled without cold stabilizing, which may forn a harmless crystalline deposit.
Dark scarlet purple hue. Ripe berry and cherry fragrances, licorice and garden spearmint over spiced oak notes. Lifted red berry flavours, complexed by Grenache spice and given extra back palate astringency by virtue of the other more tannic grapes. A mouth filling wine that will go nicely with turkey and duck, gamey meats and lamb.
