Only the free run juice of the best parcels of the vintage is used to make the Tim Adams Riesling, resulting in a delicate wine with intense aromas and flavours. The 2023 Riesling is characterized by its purity and concentration of citric flavours of lemon and lime underlain by floral notes.
Remaining true to our commitment to make quality Riesling expressing pure regionality, only juice which ran free from the press without applying any pressure was used to make this premium Riesling, from carefully selected sites throughout the Clare Valley. Following crushing, de-juicing and juice clarification, a steady fermentation proceeded for two weeks at 12—14°C to retain the delicate Riesling bouquet. The wine has been protein and cold stabilised to normal standards and contains only natural acid.
The cooler ripening conditions in Clare Valley delivered a wine with slightly lower alcohol level and with a remarkable natural acidity, providing it with freshness and longevity.
Use as an aperitif and/or enjoy with seafood or white meats over the next 15 years.
Clare Valley Rieslings are enjoyable for many years; zesty and spirited when youthful or left over time their maturation is slow, graceful, and worthy of appreciation.
Our 2023 Riesling is a prime example of this phenomenon, a wine for the present and the future. It can be enjoyed now or carefully cellared for a bigger reward in the future.
