"94 Points. A humid and cool end to the 2016 vintage was conducive to botrytis in the Clare, and hence this delightfully pure and fragrant style that captures the precision of Tim Adams’ riesling in all of its citrus purity, beautifully contrasting the honeyed, poached pear complexity of botrytis. This is not a super sweet botrytis and it upholds its tension and focus impeccably." - Tyson Stelzer, WBM Magazine, March 2017.
"There are late ripening sweeties and then there are “Botrytis” affected wines, in which a fungus, often termed “noble rot” gathers on the skins of grapes and essentially sucks out the juice thus concentrating the sugars and flavours. The result here includes typical stewed apricot aromas, then a quite distinctive gear shift with an elderflower note in the tasting. The mouth feel less viscous than many similar styles, allowing a more savoury layer than usual. Gastronomic." - Tony Love, Adelaide Advertiser, July 2017.
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.
