Tim Adams 2014 Pinot Gris

Veteran winemaker Tim Adams has the Midas touch with pinot gris; seldom missing a beat and always producing wines that are flavoursome and full of textural interest. Using fruit sourced from two Clare Valley vineyards, this has seen some of the pressings returned to blend to add palate weight. White stone fruit flavours are to the fore (think Nashi pear, Granny Smith apple  and white peach flavours) and there are a few grams of residual sugar to counterbalance the crisp natural acidity. This is a wonderfully food-friendly wine that pairs particularly well with lightly-spiced Asian dishes. A great choice for immediate summer enjoyment and something of a bargain when on special. $20.
