Tim Adams Pinot Gris 2018
Rather than removing the naturally occurring colour from this Pinot Gris, as a true expression of varietal character, the winemakers 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 was 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. It balances fullness with fruit sweetness in the middle palate and refreshing acidity.

Vintage 2017 - Everything here is as it should be. A slight bronze tinge, a burst of sweet pear, a crunch of apple and just enough texture to suggest at grippiness - without quite going there. Add fuzzy peach and lychee flavours and the barest, barest whisper of sweetness and you have a racy-but-generous white wine begging to be teamed with modestly-spiced foods.
