  • WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    The Skilly Ridge vineyard, planted by the Ingham family in 1994 produces an array of exciting varietal characteristics from each of the different planted varieties. Much thought was given to where each variety would be planted, and this saw the Riesling block thrive on a mixture of clay, loam and shale with an ideal easterly aspect. For over 25 years, this vineyard has been meticulously cared for, attention being paid to shoot positioning, sun exposure and ideal canopy size. The fruit shows intense lemon, grapefruit and blossom aromas and flavours with a focussed line of minerality and acidity, yet retains delicacy and purity for an enjoyable finish. This fruit easily deserves a home in a special release wine, holding a place close to our hearts. Produced using only free-run juice, fruit flavours are kept pure and the resultant wine mirrors the berries tasted in the vineyard at harvest. This wine is enjoyable with or without food, and can be kept to develop gracefully for up to 15 years.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Tim Adams has a strong focus based on making wines exclusively from Clare Valley grapes. They are selected for their authentic varietal and regional characters and vibrant fruit flavour. His wines can be enjoyed while youthful and fresh or cellared for five to 15 years, depending on the wine. The winery crushes over 1000 tonnes annually. The fruit is sourced from four estate vineyards and local growers including the Sheoak, Ladera, Bayes and Irelands vineyards. The Tim Adams winery is located 130km north of Adelaide in South Australia’s beautiful Clare Valley. It was first established in 1987 and grapes were crushed on site several months later. The existing winery and cellar door opened in 1988.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    Dazzling quartz-green, this has a purity and restraint that is in the fountainhead of all great rieslings. It is as much to do with what it doesn't have (overt acidity, extract, etc) as its many high points. Free-run juice from high quality grapes has its own reward. Part of this wine has been held back for release in 8-10 years time (at a very different price no doubt).

    JOE CZERWINSKI - WINE ADVOCATE


    The 2018 Skilly Ridge Riesling is a classic, traditional style of Clare Riesling. It's pale, lean and dry, with crisp notes of lime sherbet, a medium-bodied palate with something like the texture of rainwater, and an extended, slightly chalky finish. It should age well for up to a dozen years or more.

    GARY WALSH - THE WINE FRONT


    It's packed with sweet lime flavour, honey and lime leaf, comes over as juicy and quite forward, with equally succulent acidity, a light flinty texture, and a glossy smooth finish of good length. Delivers a big mouthful of Clare Riesling, though I'd say it's very much at its best around about now.
