"Excellent" (The Aberfeldy Shiraz) - Langton's Fine Wine Classification IV
The name Tim Adams will be familiar to Wine House customers, especially through his well-regarded The Aberfeldy Shiraz. Affordable prices do not paint the true picture that Tim Adams' wines are amongst the very best in Clare Valley. Despite their availability to all budgets, they are artfully made, cellarworthy and eminently enjoyable.
"Tim Adams wines are classically Clare: good, honest wines of generous flavour, aging ability and regional style. Shiraz and riesling are the most important varieties... His rieslings are among the finest and most ageworthy in Clare." - Huon Hooke
"Tim Adams is anything but your average winemaker. He has increased his plantings, but only so he can further reduce his yields. He doesn’t like the results produced by wine shows, so he doesn’t enter his them. He doesn’t want his wines to get priced beyond the range of those who presently enjoy them, so he’s leaving the wine auction scene well alone... Tim Adams just wants to make really good wine that people can drink and enjoy. And he is." - Wine Genius
