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 Polish Hill River Riesling is drawn from Lyn and Robert Jaeschke's Hill River Estate, planted in 2000 on grey brown loam on shale and sandy limestone. As with the Watervale Riesling, the Polish Hill River fruit is destemmed and crushed before pressing; the free-run juice was then settled and racked and fermented to about 11 degrees.

Region/ Country: Clare Valley, Australia

Tasting Note: Full of swagger, this release from Adelina is full-throated and unapologetic. Quite the nose buffet; peaches, lemons, kiwi fruit and vanilla offset with an elegant minerality. But the kicker is in the mouth. Like a Toorak tycoon on Christmas afternoon this wine is rich and full, revealing an "un-Australian" but delightful smack of residual sugar alongside a bracing zippiness. Passionfruit, yellow citrus, more stone fruits and a touch of herbaceousness all present but this beauty is all about the 'feels'. Want food with it? Hit up your local Szechuan restaurant. - Erez Gordon, Carboot Wines


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。
