FABULOUS LADIES REVIEW: Tim Adams Pinot Gris 2011
We were at yet another wine tasting event the other day trying a LOT of wine (because somebody has to), and of all the delectable wonderfulness that crossed our lips, this one really stood out.
In case you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, Pinot Gris is being hailed as the new Sauvignon Blanc. Pinot Gris has got all the fruity deliciousness you love about Sauv Blanc, but it’s more complex, and a generally a more interesting wine.
If you’re new to the gorgeous, golden Pinot Gris, there’s no better place to start than this delicious number from Tim Adams Wines, from the Clare Valley region of South Australia. And if you’re already a fan of the PG, then this one is sure to satisfy.
You’ll adore the fresh lychee and citrus flavours, and the zippy, clean finish. It’s a perfect example of the lighter, fruitier style of Pinot Gris that’s made in Australia (yep, there’s another kind – a deeper, richer variety, but that’s a review for another time) and it’s perfect to drink any time of day with a wide range of foods.
In fact, this Tim Adams Pinot Gris really is the little black dress of wine. Ready to be taken anywhere or be seen with anyone at a moment’s notice. Grab yourself a bottle and enjoy!
The next day I opened the bottle I took home with me to go with a home-made Caesar salad, laden with crisp, local prosciutto, and shaved parmesan. Dee-lish! Also perfect when you’ve got a sassy little plate of salty nibbles in front of you, and you’d normally reach for the Sauv Blanc.
