The Adelina vineyards are situated in Spring Farm Valley, just south of the township of Clare. Their neighbours include the vineyards of Wendouree, Aberfeldy and Sevenhill Cellars. The small Adelina plantings were originally established around 1910; mostly Shiraz and Grenache with small plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. The vineyard is right next door to Birk’s Wendouree so we know the terroir is good! The Gardner family has owned the Spring Farm Estate, which is the site of both the Adelina winery and vineyards, since 1986. Prior to the inception of Adelina Wines in 2000, the property was managed by Will and Elaine Gardner, and the fruit was sold to Tim Adams. In 2002, Col McBryde and Jen Gardner, Will and Elaine’s daughter, took over responsibility for the vineyards and launched Adelina wines which are made exclusively from the Estate vineyards. The pair has been involved in winemaking and research since the mid-90s.

Adelina's blend of Shiraz (85%) and Mataro (15%) was all grown in the Springfarm sub-area of the Clare Valley, an undeniably sweet-spot terroir for Shiraz. The Mataro and a portion of the Shiraz fruit comes from a famed, trademarked vineyard (beginning with 'A'), and the remainder is Adelina Estate fruit. All up, an imposing 60-70% of this wine comes from vines with an age of around 100 years. Ponder this while you look at the price! The Mataro grows on slightly leaner soils of red sands with clay; and the Shiraz on lime and slate on a clay base, sandwiched between two of the Clare's greatest sites: Wendouree (which lies just 150 metres from Adelina); and the Aberfeldy vineyard. All vineyards are organically farmed (certified from 2020).

Rating: 93+ points by Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

Tasting Note: This has lots going for it. Rich perfume of dark berries, sweet earth, dried flowers, very aromatic but feels kind of savoury. The palate is the same, bloody and rich, hewn with sheets of grippy, grunty tannins, upfront whips away quickly, feels tight, the finish a cavalcade of tumbling tannin, gamey fruit, piquant, tactile spice and minerally stony qualities. Boom. That somewhat missing front palate might just be the go now, but we get something serious to finish. I like it, all up.

高顏值爆款來襲,酒雲時隔兩年再次拿到配額,珍稀百年老藤佳釀,無保留推薦!

Mataro來自80年的老藤,Shiraz則來自100年以上的老藤。富有生命力的口感,濃郁果香,活潑而不失優雅,細膩綿密的單寧,都讓這款Shiraz Mataro從Clare Valley產區脫穎而出。

Adelina是個精品小酒莊,但它卻以高品質的酒款,潛移默化般地重新定義了Clare Valley的葡萄酒風格,且品質一直穩定在產區前列。從老藤的Shiraz和Mataro,再到整個澳洲都堪稱優秀的Nebbiolo和一系列表現出色的Rieslings,Adelina正在給世人越來越多的驚喜。
