Tim Adams Clare Valley Pinot Gris

By Tim Adams standards, this is a pale gris, though it’s lacking nothing in complexity. Lovely aromatics of lychees, white peach and wild honey announce a succulent and slippery style, accented with ginger and mixed spice, backed by well poised acidity and a long-lingering finish. Benchmark gris of carefully balanced fruit, sweetness, phenolic texture and acid line. $18 at McGuires and Our Cellar.
