Tim Adams Riesling 2010

The Clare and Eden Valleys produce some of the world's best value Rieslings. Here is another contender to  that title. It's hard to believe that this wine comes in under $20 too.
Yeah baby, this is awesome Riesling, and the proof is in the pudding!

As stated on the bottle, fruit parcels are sourced from four different vineyards with the best contributing to this wine, and that only being the free run juice.

Immediately on the nose you pick up slatey and minerally characteristics, with a floral perfume. The palate has this classy firmness to it which ensures a dry, long finish. A wonderfully balanced wine with all bases covered exceedingly well.

It will easily see out another ten years, and in all honesty, I would love to have a look at it then. But between now and then, there is plenty more Rieslings to get through!
