Tim Adams Wines is a family owned and operated winery in the beautiful Clare Valley, South Australia. Their wines reflect the rich soil of the region – elegant, balanced. Now, if you think all South Australian wines are about power and boldness, then Tim Adams’ wines may come as a surprise. His keynote is restraint. It certainly helps that his winery is situated in one of the highest and coolest wine regions in South Australia.
Tim is renowned for his elegant Clare Valley Shiraz and steely Riesling, so it is fantastic to see other wines in the UK that are so close to his heart: Semillon and Grenache. The Grenache was born out of adversity in the 1993 Clare Valley vintage when Tim faced a dire shortage of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, and asked his neighbour for a parcel of old-vine Grenache. It worked so well, and became so popular, that Tim created a special wine from 100% Grenache to show off the spectacular old-vine fruit.
Years of hard work, passion and curiosity have resulted in a progressive family winery that is committed to creating elegant wines, without forgetting its obligation to the Australian wine industry, environment and wider community.
