Tim Adams Aberfeldy Shiraz 2013

Woah, bring on the toast. I've not had the pleasure of the Aberfeldy before, and 24m in American hogsheads has sure left its mark and certainly harks back - for me - to a different time and place. 

Certainly a wine of its style. Weaves toasty coconut oak in with a creamy, herbal element. The palate is thick, chewy, lavish - with blackcurrant fruit adding its own dimension. 

The tannin profile sits nicely, adding a rasp across the middle and final thirds, carrying the wine long across the finish. For a generous wine, it also pulls off a subtlety. Accomplished well. 92
