Tim Adams Pinot Gris 2018

Clare Valley, South Australia   |    750ml   |    12%
Tim Adams Pinot Gris is one of our favourite examples of this incredibly popular white wine variety. The 2018 Tim Adams Pinot Gris displays an incredible fruit vibrancy, with beautiful rounded mouthfeel and an appealing underlying savoury texture. Another superb example of Australian Pinot Gris, this is an ideal match with seafood, Asian cuisine or simply by itself while the sun is shining.

"An extremely popular annual release from respected Clare producer Tim Adams and winemaker Brett Schutz. Its point of difference has always been a faint pink or as the winery calls it, a “rose gold” tinge, a subtle result of the variety’s unusual grey-bronze skin colour. It’s immediately attractive in its cut and quartered apple and pear characters, nose to tail, with fabulous refreshing acidity underlying the whole line and length. More-ish beyond deliciousness. 4.5"- Tony Love, Herald Sun, August 7, 2018.

Owner and winemaker, Tim Adams, began his career in the wine industry as a cellarhand at the Stanley Wine Company in 1975, steadily working his way through the ranks to become winemaker in 1981 following graduation. The first inclination to leave came in 1985, when Tim and his wife were approached by local cooper Bill Wray to form a partnership of the two families to make wine and small oak casks.

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.

Rather than removing the naturally occurring colour from our Pinot Gris, as a true expression of varietal character we choose to retain it in this wine. The resultant slight rose-gold hue matches the equally rich and robust fruit characters on the palate, expressing what has been a drier than average vintage, leading to fruit-rich wines.

The 2018 Pinot Gris has opulent pear, lychee and peach flavours complemented by subtle citrus zest, fullness with fruit sweetness in the middle palate and refreshing acidity.

There certainly is no mistaking the variety in the bottle; this vintage is yet another classic example of our chosen style!
