2012 Tim Adams 'The Fergus' Grenache

Taking it's name from the owner of a neighboring vineyard who was kind enough to sell them Grenache grapes during a shortage of Shiraz and Cabernet during. This vintage the grapes were fermented with Tempranillo skins and blended with a significant amount of Tempranillo and Malbec. 

Good varietal distinction with aromas of cherry, raspberry and spice. Nice hardy tannins, mid level acidity, and good length. Paired very well with Turkish lamb pide (something like a Turkish pizza). A pleasant surprise to find such an enjoyable Grenache from a region not well known for this varietal.
