Tim Adams Pinot Gris 2013, Clare Valley, SA

Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Riesling 2010 Margaret River Tim Adams Pinot Gris 2013 Clare Valley Simple Palates Seriously

AUD$19. One of Australia’s best Pinot Gris, Tim Adams’ brilliant lychee syrup, nashi pear flesh laden offering is still drinking wonderfully despite the current vintage being the 2014 bottling. Light yellow-gold colour, a fresh nose which tends to last 2 years at least, it’s got lovely richness in that orange-peach and ripe pear flavours. These wines always tend to pick up a touch of savouriness with time, transforming into a slight Marsanne without the weight. It’s the perfect wine for Asian food – think Assam king prawns, Thai noodle salads with that final squeeze of lime. Drink now. 89.
