"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." James Halliday
The wine is deeply flavoured and fragrant. It captures the character of Riesling enhanced by aromatics of lime, lemon and grapefruit. The seamless palate provides an acid finale. Like most Riesling wines from Clare Valley, it should be drunk whilst young and fresh. The wine can also be cellared for more than a decade, developing delightful aged flavours. This wine can be had as an aperitif or served with seafood.
Tim Adams Riesling has been one of my favourite wines for several years now. It demonstrates how a beautiful tasting and satisfying wine doesn't have to be high in alcohol - this Riesling usually varies between 11% and 11.1/2% volume. This was my first purchase direct from Tim Adams and it won't be my last! The delivery was speedy and I was kept informed of progress throughout. I also benefited from a much appreciated 10% discount. My thanks to both Craig and Jackie for there efficient service.
