| In 1980's I founded The Australian Wine Centre in the basement of the then South Australia House on the Strand in London. It became the focus of Australian wine in the UK , winner of the International WINE Challenge "Australian Wine Merchant of the Year" 5 times.|
I remain as committed as ever to bringing to you great value wines from small wineries. The Australian Wine Centre on the Strand is no more, but it lives on here!

"A berry-scented, elegantly expressed Aussie red polished with a delicate brush of vanilla oak and a touch of herbs" Anthony Rose (The Independent)
TIM ADAMS CLARE VALLEY SHIRAZ
"Tim Adams Shiraz has given me more pleasure than almost any other Australian red" Oz Clarke (Oz Clarke Wine Guide)
" 94 POINTS (James Hallidays Australian Wine Guide)
Dense, vibrant colour is a feature of this brooding beauty, along with very ripe, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberry and pepper on the nose. The palate is generous, ripe and mouth filling exhibiting berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak-derived mocha overtones and harmonious, soft yet defined tannins.
