The first wines under the Adams & Wray label were released in September 1986, by which time Tim had left the Stanley Wine Company. In May 1987 the Adams & Wray partnership was dissolved, and Tim and his wife Pam took full control of the renamed Tim Adams Wines. In late 1987 they purchased the existing winery site and opened the cellar door in January 1988.
Rieslings from the Clare Valley are enjoyable for many years; zesty and spirited when youthful or left over time their maturation is slow, graceful, and worthy of appreciation. Our Riesling is a prime example of this wonderful phenomenon.
Winemaking Notes: Remaining true to our commitment to make quality Riesling expressing pure regionality, only the free run juice was used to make this premium Clare Valley Riesling. Following crushing, de-juicing and juice clarification, fermentation proceeded for two weeks at 12—14°C. The wine has been protein and cold stabilised to normal standards and fined with isinglass. Minimal sulphur dioxide has been used and our Riesling contains only natural acidity.
