How's it taste?

As the principal variety of the world-renowned wines of Rioja, Tempranillo has long been the backbone of the Spanish red-wine industry. We discovered many years ago that drinking these wines from Rioja could be a wonderful experience and so decided to search for the appropriate site, soil and clone to plant in our vineyards at Watervale. On an exploratory trip to Spain to meet the winemakers and taste wines in Rioja, Tim met Isaac Muga, who agreed to work with us in Clare for vintage 2004. In 2004, we planted 6.5 hectares of Tempranillo on our Ladera vineyard in Clare. This wine, from the 2009 vintage, was selected from individual barrels before blending and exhibits the definitive Tempranillo characters of strawberry and cherry, in harmony with clove and cinnamon spice derived from 18 months aging in new and second-use French oak. The wine is spicy and savoury by Australian standards and is lower in alcohol than most red wines we make. The wine will develop to its full potential over the next 10 years

Who made it?

Tim Adams has a strong focus based on making wines exclusively from Clare Valley grapes. They are selected for their authentic varietal and regional characters and vibrant fruit flavour. His wines can be enjoyed while youthful and fresh or cellared for five to 15 years, depending on the wine. The winery crushes over 1000 tonnes annually. The fruit is sourced from four estate vineyards and local growers including the Sheoak, Ladera, Bayes and Irelands vineyards. The Tim Adams winery is located 130km north of Adelaide in South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley. It was first established in 1987 and grapes were crushed on site several months later. The existing winery and cellar door opened in 1988.

Senior Wine Advisor

I love experimenting with wines and encourage our Wine Collective members to try something different all the time. It’s amazing how the same grape variety from 2 different regions made by 2 different wine makers can taste so different. Some wines can be enjoyed on their own while others are better with food. If we all liked the same thing we’d be pretty boring.
