Mr Mick' is a range of wines created by Tim Adams following his purchase of the historic Leasingham winery in the heart of the Clare Valley. The range is named in honour of winemaking legend 'Mick' Knappstein; a mentor of Tim's during his apprentice days at Leasingham.

Mr Mick Riesling has quickly established itself as one of Australia's most consistent and best value Riesling and the 2018 Mr Mick Riesling will only bolster this reputation. Made in a classic Clare Valley style, the 2017 Mr Mick Riesling is packed with plenty of lime, orange blossom and lemon curd flavours. With a subtle touch of fruit sweetness to balance the crisp natural acidity, this is another great value Riesling from Tim Adams.

Description: This wine has lemon pith, lime and orange blossom aromas and flavours, made in the classic Australian style with just a touch of fruit sweetness to balance the fresh natural acidity. It is a pristine wine with generous length of fruit flavour, a true reflection of the stunning 2018 vintage.

Winemaking Notes: Vintage 2018 in the Clare Valley saw lower than average rainfall throughout winter and spring, which led to limited subsoil moisture for the beginning of the growing season. Access to water and good irrigation management was critical, allowing canopies to remain healthy and strong. The long warm, sunny conditions of the ripening days and the cool nights has resulted in consistent yields and excellent quality.

Growing Conditions: The 2017 growing season was extremely wet, with some flooding in the Clare Valley in late September. However, the wet winter and cool spring provided the region with plenty of sub surface moisture which in turn has resulted in excellent quality and high yields.

In summary, the vintage was later than we have seen over the past few years, but quality and yields appear to be some of the best in a decade.
