A Clare Valley legend

Owner and winemaker, Tim Adams, began his career in the wine industry as a cellarhand at the Stanley Wine Company in 1975, steadily working his way through the ranks to become winemaker in 1981 following graduation. The first inclination to leave came in 1985, when Tim and his wife were approached by local cooper Bill Wray to form a partnership of the two families to make wine and small oak casks. The first wines under the Adams & Wray label were released in September 1986, by which time Tim had left the Stanley Wine Company.   In May 1987 the Adams & Wray partnership was dissolved, and Tim and his wife Pam took full control of the renamed Tim Adams Wines.  In late 1987 they purchased the existing winery site and opened the cellar door in January 1988.

This wine…

Tim Adams Pinot Gris 2019

“Tim Adams was ahead of the pack when it came to planting this variety and is remarkably consistent, producing his house style, seemingly regardless of vintage variation.  It is very much a gris and captures the natural acidity of the Clare Valley, affording it freshness and energy.  Medium yellow colour, can’t help but see a (varietal) faint pink edge. Classic,…

Tim Adams Riesling 2019

“(…)  gorgeously fragranced…” “A triumph of a challenging drought year, Tim Adams’ legendary Riesling is gorgeously fragranced with white flowers and loaded with pristine lemon, kaffir lime, apple and white pepper.  It holds impressive persistence and presence.  With dry season concentration and structure, this is a vintage to drink young.” Tyson Stelzer, WBM, September/October 2019
