Tim Adams Pinot Gris 2020 (Clare Valley)
Rather than removing the naturally occurring colour from the Tim Adams 2020 Pinot Gris, as a true expression of varietal character the winery chooses to retain it in this wine. The resultant rose-gold hue matches the equally rich and robust fruit characters on the palate, expressing what has been one of the driest vintages on record, leading to fruit-rich wines.
Harvested in the cool of the early morning, Pinot Gris from optimum irrigated and dry-grown vineyard sites throughout the Clare Valley was crushed, chilled to 5 degrees and pressed, the pressings separated. A cool fermentation ensued for two weeks, allowing maximum lifted varietal fruit expression. Individual vineyard parcels were cold-filtered with a single pass before carefully blending together. The wine has been cold and protein stabilised to industry standards, fined, filtered and immediately bottled under screw cap to encapsulate the flavours and ensure freshness.
