A family owned and operated business, Tim Adams Wines was started as a partnership between Tim and Pam Adams, and coopers Bill and Jill Wray. It was established in 1984 in Clare Valley. The first vintage was launched in 1986, under the label ‘Adams and Wray’. The following year saw the partnership getting dissolved, and both the couples choosing to focus on their respective passions.
The premium grapes used to craft Tim Adams Shiraz were procured from various local vineyards in Clare Valley. The wine shows a vibrant purple colour, and exudes floral and fruity aromas of violets, mulberries and blackberries from its fragrant nose. This indulgent Clare Shiraz is full and soft on the palate, filled with small berry fruit flavours which are further enhanced by American oak nuances. Combined with fine and fruit derived tannins, these fragrances and flavours lead to a smooth and captivating finish. This elegant dry red has been crafted to be enjoyed upon release, but can also be cellared for up to a decade from vintage. It tastes delicious with Asian spare ribs, BBQ T-bone steak with chimichurri salsa, and beef burgers.
