32 Year Old Clare Valley vines. Made by Tim Adams & only $15
About this Wine
This wine has lemon pith, lime and orange blossom aromas and flavours, made in the classic Australian style with just a touch of fruit sweetness to balance the fresh natural acidity. It is a pristine wine with generous length of fruit flavour.
"From four named Clare vineyards, it overflows with Meyer lemon, lime and Granny Smith apple inputs on the bouquet and palate alike. If there's any residual sugar it's far from obvious. This is as honest as the day is long, and terrific value." 90pts - James Halliday - Wine Companion
About the Winery
Mr. Mick Wines is named after the late K.H. (Mr. Mick) Knappstein, an Australian winemaking legend and Tim Adams’ mentor and friend. Tim and his wife Pam are proud custodians of the landmark property at 7 Dominic Street, Clare, that now bears his name and houses a renowned restaurant, cellar door and gallery. Tim and the winemaking team continues Mr. Mick’s philosophy of making "affordable wines for everyone to enjoy".
Tim Adams' formative years were spent in South Australia's Clare Valley. As a Clare lad growing up among pioneering grape growers and winemakers, it was no surprise that in his final year of school Tim eschewed studying in favour of writing to Clare Valley wineries seeking employment. The recipient of one such letter was Mr Mick Knappstein at the Stanley Wine Company, which led to Tim securing a position as winery cellar hand in 1975.
