One to note: Tim Adams Clare Valley Pinot Gris

A PUNT that paid off makes for a great-matching
wine with Asian cuisine and seafoods.

ONE TO NOTE: THE CLARE Valley’s Tim Adams took a big punt when he planted his first Pinot Gris after enjoying an Alsace Pinot Gris with an old mate, and afterwards thinking the variety might do well on a couple of sites he had in mind in Clare.

And that punt certainly more than paid off, for today Tim Adams’ is amongst the top-sellers of premium Australian Pinot Gris, Tim making his from fruit off his own and select other Clare Valley vineyards.

This 2015 is all about mouth-filling flavours of pear, leatherwood honey and peach, off-set with a subtle citrus zest, fruity sweetness on the middle palate, and cleansing acidity. Nicely priced at $22 for a wine of this quality, it’s a natural to enjoy with Asian cuisine, seafoods and salads.
