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.

One of Australia's most exciting Riesling makers, Adelina has again produced some stunning offerings from the 2020 vintage. This 2020 Adelina Watervale Riesling hails from the mature Gulley View vineyard; a vineyard that historically supplied Leo Buring - one of Australia's Riesling greats.

Made slightly off-dry (5 g/L) - which is barely noticeable, this small amount of residual sugar balances the muscular acidity this vineyard delivers. Offering classic Clare aromas of lime, grapefruit and spice, this is beautifully textured, chalky and lively with plenty of citrus fruit flavours delivered on the palate. A delicious Clare Valley loaded with personality, this offers plenty of joy in its youth.

Rating: 93 points by Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

Tasting Note: It’s a richer, more bodied expression of Polish Hill River riesling than we’ve come to expect but that doesn’t make it a lesser one. Indeed this is a gorgeous wine to drink. Lime, mandarin and lemon sorbet flavours light up the palate with flavour and energy. Tasted: Dec20 12.2% alc. $25 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2025+


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。
