Top Aussie Red

Tim Adams The Fergus, Clare Valley 2009 $23

A very good value for money rustic red blended from mainly grenache with tempranillo, mataro and shiraz. Earthy berry aromas tinged with peppermint and herbal notes. It’s firm and upright on the palate, with some firmness from tannin, and at five years is showing some developed complexity. Now to 2022. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 89/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: steak and kidney pie

Stockist: Elizabeth Bay Cellars; Tom’s Cellars West Pymble
