Named after K.H. (Mick) Knappstein, but made by the artful Tim Adams, Mr Mick Wines offer incredible value for money, showcasing the beautiful Clare Valley region. One of Mr. Mick's passions in life was making wines for everyone to enjoy. This philosophy is evident in the wines, and carried on today by Tim.
Premium Tempranillo fruit, fermented for a week with its skins, was then gently pressed, with the pressings separated in order to ensure a smooth silky palate. The wine was then matured using French oak before fining, filtering and bottling. It is suitable for drinking anytime from the present to ten years of age.
Crafted in typical Mr Mick style, this wine has distinctive varietal character of cherries and strawberries, subtle French oak perfume flavours with smooth tannins, a hint of spice and a long lingering finish.
JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
7 days on skins before unspecified oak maturation. An easy going tempranillo, red cherry fruit in the driving seat, the tannins fine. Great value.'
CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT
Roasted cherries and toasty oak combine to make a tasty red that’s easy to drink and like. You’d call it fresh-faced in general and the fruit is definitely on open display, though it feels as though it’s just starting to mellow. It’s better drinking than most reds at this price.'
