JOHN ROZENTALS tastes a range of exciting new releases from Tim Adams.

October 31, 2020 Beverage No Comments

Tim Adams and his winemaking and viticultural teams are proud to release new vintage wines that are close to everyones’ hearts, including a wine with plenty of nostalgia.

The year 2020 provided a challenging season with yields below average for the second year in a row.

The beginning of the growing season was quite hot and dry but the months of January, February and March were cooler than the long-term average, which resulted in higher-than-normal natural acidity retention in the fruit at harvest.

“Our trademark pinot gris, for instance, has extremely concentrated, yet vibrant flavours due to the dry conditions, whilst retaining crisp natural acidity and providing a perfectly balanced wine”, Tim said.

WINE REVIEWS

Tim Adams 2020 Riesling ($24): The use of only the free-run juice has resulted in this wine being intensely flavoured and aromatic, retaining delicacy at the same time. The wine has floral and citrus aromas. On the palate there is richness of flavour, freshness and trademark brisk finish. Rieslings from the Clare Valley are enjoyable for many years: zesty and spirited when youthful, or left over time their maturation is slow, graceful, and worthy of appreciation. Use as an aperitif and enjoy with any seafood and white meats over the next 10 years.

Tim Adams 2017 Shiraz ($26): This sophisticated yet elegant wine has a vibrant crimson hue with aromas and flavours of blackberry, mulberry and fresh cherries. The front and mid-palate are full and soft, with flavours of small berry fruit and spice complemented by gently toasted oak. The wine has great length, finishing with balanced oak and silky, structural tannin. Drink with just about any red-meat or mushroom dish.

 

WINE OF THE WEEK

Tim Adams 2016 The Fergus ($25): The release of Tim Adams 2016 The Fergus, a blend of grenache, tempranillo and malbec comes with a hint of sadness as Tim pays tribute to Fergus Mahon, the inspiration behind the name, who passed away earlier in the year. “This wine is close to our heart as in 1993 when shiraz and cabernet were extremely difficult to get, our kind neighbour Fergus Mahon sold us his grenache, and The Fergus was born. We quickly realised that a wine born from circumstance had real potential as a medium, soft style with immediate food compatibility. The 2016 is particularly special as it was the final vintage release before our respected friend and neighbour passed away. He will live on not only in our memories, but through this popular blend,” Tim said.
