The Fergus is named after our neighbour who was good enough to sell us his Grenache grapes in the vintage of 1993, during a desperate shortage of Shiraz and Cabernet. We quickly realised that a wine born from logistics had real potential as a medium, but soft style with immediate food compatibility. This wine has lifted red strawberry aromas and flavours of Tempranillo, with spiciness from Grenache and mid palate richness with dark berry and violet characters coming from Malbec. Ageing in older French oak hogsheads adds subtle yet integrated perfume and toasted characters. It is a luscious mouth filling wine with silky tannin that with careful cellaring may be kept for up to 15-20 years. It nicely complements duck, turkey, lamb and spicy dishes. - Winery Note
