Product Description

  • The Fergus - Red Australian Wine
  • "The Fergus" is named after our neighbour, Fergus Mahon, who kindly sold us his Grenache grapes in 1993 during a desperate shortage of Shiraz and Cabernet. We quickly realised the potential of this medium bodied, luscious wine style.
  • This vintage consists of Grenache, Tempranillo and Malbec from the dry-grown vineyards of the Mahon family and from our own.
  • Fermentation on skins for seven days preceded pressing and then maturation in a mixture of French and American oak for 24 months. The wine is aromatic and spicy, with mouthfilling flavour and fine tannins. Particularly good with duck, turkey, lamb and game.

Allergy Information

Tasting Notes

  • The wine has lifted red berry aromas and flavours of Tempranillo, with further complexity of Grenache spiciness. Malbex adds mid palate richness and flavours of berries and violets. It is a mouth filling wine that may be kept for up to 10 years.

Excellent wine

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

A glorious wine only available through Tesco. Delivery problems at Greenford mean that I am unable to purchase it. Pity

Great Sunday Roast Wine

5 stars

Review from tesco.com

This is an unusual combination of grapes and as such you meet in one glass a variety of multi-layered smells and flavours. For the purists this might be a problem since there is much metaphorical changing of lanes required by the taster but if you stick with it the wine is rewarding. Initially on the nose there is abundant autumn dark berry fruit followed by a distinct bell pepper almost petroleum undertone. It has substantial but not overwhelming mouth feel transiting to the dark fruit flavours finally offering up a hint of mint and cedar, A complex wine which offers much.

A wine to proud of on the christmas dinner table

Review from tesco.com

Tasted this at the 2012 London Wine Fair and it was one of my favourites on the day as were all the Tim Adams range, deep powerful fruit flavours with a kick of spice, bought the last remaining few on the shelves at my local branch but unfortunately not available online at the moment. When it is buy it !!

The Fergus Unusually Dissapointing

Review from tesco.com

I've been buying this wine from Tesco for some years. Opened a bottle of the 2007 within days of purchase and it didn't taste"right".Checked with my wife, who has a very accurate sense of taste, and she agreed As it has a screwcap it couldn't have been "corked". For comparison purposes opened a bottle of the 2006 from my cellar and it was in excellent condition and worthy of 5 stars. When the 2008 is on sale shall try it just to make sure the 2007 was a one off.

The Fergus - a serious wine!

Deep flavoured grenache that will still improve with age. Ideal with mustard-coated pork fillets; has the body and depth to go well with most foods.
