95 Points - James Halliday
Tim Adams Clare Valley Riesling is a long time favourite Australian Riesling and the 2019 vintage is again a benchmark example. Tim Adams utilises only 'free run juice' at crushing, allowing him to deliver an intensely flavoured and aromatic example that still manages the retain the delicacy Clare Valley Riesling is famous for.
The 2019 Tim Adams Riesling opens with plenty of floral and citrus aromatics of grapefruit, lime and lemon. The palate is seamless with a richness of flavour built from perfect ripening conditions leading into a stellar vintage. This will please the many fans of this benchmark Clare Valley Riesling and comes with our highest recommendation.
"95 Points. In one sense there's nothing much to say about this wine, simply because its persona is classic Clare. Lemon, lemongrass and lime fruit are fused together by acidity that doesn't jar on the finish, simply providing the all-important length and crisp finish. $24.00 11.5% alc. Drink By 2034 Screwcap" - James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au.
"Tim Adams is one of the heroes of the Clare Valley, producing a range of interesting wines at realistic prices. This is one of the first 2019 rieslings to be released and it is a little ripper with oodles of bright, fresh citrus flavours, tangy minerality and refreshing acidity. Adams describes the conditions for the 2019 vintage in the Clare as “brilliant” and this wine is testimony to that. Pair with old school fish and chips. $24." - Winsor Dobbin, Ciao Magazine, August 2019.
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.
