What the Experts Say

(Review is of the 2018 vintage; we stock the 2019)

Clare Valley pinot gris.

Light for a gris. Almost into grigio territory. Crisp, or thereabouts, with red apple flavours sprinkled with glucose. Not a lot of finish.

86/100 - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

Our Notes

This bold and rose-hued Pinot Gris is harvested in the cool of the morning, cold-pressed and cold-fermented to allow maximum expression of the bold fruit the cool nights of the Clare Valley can bring out in the Pinot Gris grape.

A fresh and aromatic wine with notes of lychee, nashi pear and citrus zest.

Winemakers Comments

Cabernet components were separately fermented on skins, Malbec components co-fermented to dryness for seven days before being pressed. All pressings have been returned to the wine to enhance texture and mouth-feel. Each of the parcels of wine spent 24 months ageing in a selected proportion of new, second-use and older French oak in our barrel store prior to blending, fining and bottling in July 2019.

Feel content cellaring this Cabernet Malbec for at least ten years in good conditions. We recommend decanting a few hours before enjoying. The wine has not been cold stabilised, so a harmless crust may form with time.

About the Winery

Since the 1980s, partners Tim Adams and Pam Goldsack have collaborated with the finest Australian growers and winemakers to produce wine for both major market players and their own label. Under the Tim Adams label, they’ve released a consistent stream of well-loved Rieslings in the classic Clare Valley style and bold Shirazes.

The business is ever-growing, and recently purchased 80ha of vineyard to further their operation.
