4.5/5 Stars Tony Love, Herald Sun
Rather than removing the naturally occurring colour from our Pinot Gris, as a true expression of varietal character we choose to retain it in this wine. The resultant slight rose-gold hue matches the equally rich and robust fruit characters on the palate, expressing what has been a drier than average vintage, leading to fruit-rich wines.
The 2018 Pinot Gris has opulent pear, lychee and peach flavours complemented by subtle citrus zest, fullness with fruit sweetness in the middle palate and refreshing acidity.
There certainly is no mistaking the variety in the bottle; this vintage is yet another classic example of their chosen style!
“An extremely popular annual release from respected Clare producer Tim Adams and winemaker Brett Schutz. Its point of difference has always been a faint pink or as the winery calls it, a “rose gold” tinge, a subtle result of the variety’s unusual grey-bronze skin colour. It’s immediately attractive in its cut and quartered apple and pear characters, nose to tail, with fabulous refreshing acidity underlying the whole line and length. More-ish beyond deliciousness.” – 4.5/5 Stars Tony Love, Herald Sun
