A glorious wine only available through Tesco. Delivery problems at Greenford mean that I am unable to purchase it. Pity
Great Sunday Roast Wine
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
No only for the Xmas table but for any special dinner party it's a medium bodied soft wine but can be drunk on its own or with a chunk of finest vintage cheder cheese
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
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.
