Tim Adams Wines has an ongoing commitment to Australia's special children through the Variety Club.
This commitment involves ongoing participation in Variety South Australia events and raising money through the sale of cleanskin wines (see right).
Variety SA in one of the most accredited chapters of the charity world wide, has recently been awarded the international 'Gold Heart'. This is assessed on the amount of money raised in a year, the spirit of the tent (the term used by Variety for its chapters), the impact on the children of their community, the efficiency of operations and fundraising and participation in Variety's significant events.
Our major fundraiser for this worthy cause is the production and sales of Clare Valley cleanskins, with $20 from each case sold going directly to South Australia's children.
Keep an eye on the Variety of SA website to see some of the fantastic work that your contribution can assist Variety to continue doing! http://www.variety.org.au/SA/
We will continue to support this fantastic cause with value-for-money wines that sell for $90 – 95 per dozen, with $20 from this being donated to Variety SA. The wines on offer are:
2011 Clare Valley Chardonnay Brut
Made from 100% Clare Valley Chardonnay grown on our new Rogers vineyard, this fizz is great value. Delicate flavours with persistent bead. Enjoy it as an aperitif with friends and family. It is now sealed with the new resealable sparkling cap (if you don't drink the whole bottle!)
2007 Clare Valley GSM Brut
This new sparkling red is made predominantly from Grenache and Shiraz and is sure to please with soft sweet fruit and matching low tannins. Sealed with the same resealable cap as the Chardonnay Brut.
2010 Clare Valley Riesling
Intense floral and lime aromas and flavours, balanced with very slight sweetness and moderate acidity. Sealed under screwcap, the wine can be kept with confidence for 2 – 3 years.
2009 Clare Valley Cabernet
This wine has vibrant colour with lifted red berry fruit dominant on the nose and palate. Moderate tannin balances the finish and will ensure longevity to at least 5 years in bottle. Sealed under screw cap, every bottle will be the way we intend.
2009 Clare Valley Shiraz
Deep colour and depth of flavour, with great balance of fruit and oak - from 100% Clare Valley fruit. Dark cherry and plum aromas and flavours are balanced with subtle oak and fine tannins. The wine can be kept for at least 5 years and is sealed under screw cap.
2008 Clare Valley Merlot
A generous wine with a fruit driven palate of cherries and plums, balanced with well integrated oak which contributes a hint of herbal spiciness. Showing maturity in fruit development, this smooth 100% Clare Valley Merlot is sure to impress and is a great food wine, or one to simply enjoy amongst friends.
