Description

The definition of the word ‘Reserve’ is “something to be retained for future use”. Tim and Brett have done exactly that with the 2012 Tim Adams Reserve Cabernet Malbec.
Cabernet Sauvignon has long been recognised as an excellent variety in our district. By co-fermenting small parcels of outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, we have produced a powerful, full bodied wine. Twenty-four months in new French oak provides spice and balance to the wine, which is dominated by fresh blackcurrant, capsicum and violet flower aromas and flavours.
Further tank and bottle ageing prior to release has melded all wine components to further enhance the prestige of this wine. Patient cellaring will be rewarded, with potential to improve up to 20 years if cellared in good conditions.

Growing Conditions

2012 – was another beautiful year in the Clare Valley. We are truly spoilt for weather most years and this was no exception. A lovely long harvest season finishing around Easter with all varietals performing well.
