Mr Mick Riesling 2014

Clare Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    10.5%
Mr Mick' is a relatively new range of wines launched by Tim Adams; one of Australia's most talented winemakers. The range is named in honour of K.H Knappstein; a legend of Australian wine and a former mentor of Tim Adams. In the late 1960’s, under Mr Mick’s guidance, Leasingham began production of Bin 5 Riesling. The wine was rich in the mid palate, with lowish levels of residual sugar and acidity. Tim Adams' 'Mr Mick' Riesling revives the intent of the Bin 5; a Riesling for all people, all occasions and a wide range of cuisines.

This 2014 Mr Mick Riesling is made in a classic Australian style; packed with lime, orange blossom and lemon curd flavours, this has just a subtle touch of sweetness to balance the crisp natural acidity. A superb Clare Riesling that offers incredible value drinking.

"During the 1970s, legendary Clare winemaker Mick Knappstein taught Tim Adams about riesling-making in the historic Leasingham winery. Decades later, Adams purchased his old alma mater and resurrected one of Knappstein's most successful wine styles – a pure, delicate, fruity riesling with the smallest kiss of residual grape sugar - marketed as Leasingham Bin 5 Riesling. Mr Mick 2014 is a beautiful, fresh, tasty, fruity and effectively dry all-round quaffer, perhaps a little rounder and fuller than the 2013 vintage" - Chris Shanahan. Epicure, The Age, January 27, 2015.

"It’s not rocket surgery. Lavender and lemon barley with a clean juicy burst of lemon scented fruit, clean acidity, a light chalkiness to texture and a crunchy finish. Touch of sweetness here, but not too much. It’s a versatile wine that would be great with traditional Australian Chinese cuisine, if you know what I mean. Really good drinking here. Rated: 89 Points Tasted: Feb15 Alcohol: 11.5% Price: $16 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2015 - 2018" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

This wine is made from Riesling grapes harvested at their peak flavour maturity from various vineyards within the Clare Valley. Some of the vines were planted as early as 1980. The juice was immediately separated from skins then cold settled and fermented for 14 days. Careful blending ensures continuation of the true Mr Mick style. It is a great wine just to sit, sip and enjoy, or try it with any South Aussie seafood.

This wine has lemon curd, lime and orange blossom aromas and flavours, made in the classic Australian style with just a touch of fruit sweetness to balance the crisp natural acidity. It is a pristine wine with generous length of flavour.
