Tim Adams Pinot Gris 2019
Tim Adams and his wife Pam founded Tim Adams Wines in 1987 at Warenda Road in Clare Valley and have now built such a reputation locally and overseas that in 2016 Tim was named one of the Ten Apostles - Stories of Australia's Iconic Winemakers in David Aylward and Paul Ashton’s book. Not only did Tim Adams choose to make a Pinot Gris in Riesling's Aussie heartland, he decided to keep the grape's characteristic rose gold hue (think pink). The resulting Tim Adams Pinot Gris is a very flavoursome, fruity wine that will have you rethinking what you expect from a Pinot Gris.
Full-flavoured and delicious, this exquisitely balanced Tim Adams Pinot Gris is bursting with fragrance, taste and texture. The palate is intense and resplendent, marrying sweet tropical fruits and vibrant citrus acidity with a spicy, silky mouthfeel. A lovely crisp finish asking to be enjoyed chilled with fresh sushi and cold salads.

Vintage 2017 - Everything here is as it should be. A slight bronze tinge, a burst of sweet pear, a crunch of apple and just enough texture to suggest at grippiness - without quite going there. Add fuzzy peach and lychee flavours and the barest, barest whisper of sweetness and you have a racy-but-generous white wine begging to be teamed with modestly-spiced foods.
