This wine celebrates the enduring partnership of 'Mr Mick' and Gela Knappstein in life and love. When Tim Adams asked Mr Mick’s wife if he could name the Blanc de Blanc after her, she simply replied, “yes, as long as you make it from Riesling!”
The Mr Mick 'Gela' Cuvee Brut Sparkling is made from Riesling grapes harvested from the “Rogers” vineyard 5 km NE of Clare. It was cold fermented and then secondarily fermented under pressure before bottling. The wine has fresh apple and citrus aromas with savoury yeast complexity and a delicate bead; extremely approachable this is a versatile sparkling wine of enormous appeal.
In addition to the wines under the Tim Adams label, Tim Adams launched the 'Mr Mick' range of wines following the purchase of the famous Leasingham winery. This range is named in honour of K.H Knappstein aka 'Mr Mick'; a legend of Australian wine and a former mentor of Tim Adams. These wines offer fine examples of the varieties Tim and the Clare Valley do best along with some emerging, less conventional varietals.
Some current standouts in the Mr Mick range include their Vermentino, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Cabernet Merlot, Shiraz along with a very impressive Tempranillo - these all offer approachable, flavoursome styles at very reasonable prices.
