Adelina

Next door to Wendouree’s most famous, eponymous estate, the Adelina vineyards are situated in Spring Farm Valley, just south of the township of Clare. Established around 1910 they feature mostly Shiraz and Grenache with small plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. Some fruit is also sourced from vineyards in the Adelaide Hills.

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.

Traditional methods are used both in the vineyard and in the very modest winery. Grapes are hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed. A wide variety of fermentation vessels are utilised (from steel to concrete, to new and old woods). Wild ferments and juice left on its lees for extended periods builds unique, refreshing and textural wines.

  • Adelina Polish Hill River Riesling 2018

    Adelina Polish Hill River Riesling 2018

    $23.00in any six

    $25.00 per single bottle

    This is one of our favourite wines from the 2019 Riesling Galaxy tasting. Adelina’s Polish Hill River Riesling is pure, pure and pure. So precise and composed. The citrus fruit hovers over a bed of cold, wet stone. Intoxicating. As with the Watervale Riesling, the Polish Hill River fruit is handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented […]

    $23.00in any six

    $25.00 per single bottle

    The 2018 Watervale Riesling from Adelina has a captivating perfume of citrus, grapefruit and spice. Gorgeous filigree texture, interwoven with lemon and limes. Just off-dry, the finish is chalky and full of tension. Adelina’s Watervale Riesling hails from the mature Gulley View vineyard, on red loamy clay over limestone. Historically the fruit is supplied by […]

    This wine hails from the Grigg vineyard in the Piccadilly Valley, high in the Adelaide Hills and is the first Adelina Chardonnay ever released. The vines here were planted in 1997 in soils made up of mottled, yellow clays and lots of quartz. The fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed to concrete for indigenous […]

    $26.00in any six

    $28.00 per single bottle

    This cracker from the Clare Valley is absolutely packed with red fruits. Cherries, red currants, cranberries and raspberries burst on the nose and palate. Sweet fruits, tangy acidity and savoury tannins make for a delicious, medium-bodied bistro wine. The 2017 Adelina Shiraz Mataro is just fabulous and ridiculous value. The grapes come from Springfarm, Clare […]

    Adelina Nebbiolo Rosato 2018

    $27.00in any six

    $30.00 per single bottle

    If South Australia lays claim to a cult rosé of its own, then Adelina’s engagingly complex, tangy-savoury rosato is at the top of the list. This is a vivid, mouth-watering rosé from the top draw. At once dry, textural and varietal and yet so much more. It’s made from the wild-fermented juice of Ann Lees and […]

    Adelina Grenache 2016

    $39.00in any six

    $42.00 per single bottle

    When you know the story behind the Adelina Grenache, the sublime quality starts to make sense. It’s grown in a tiny, old-vine two-acre parcel a stone’s throw from the iconic Wendouree vineyard. The wine is inspired by Emmanuel Reynaud’s legendary Château Rayas. From very low yields, the juice spends 50 days on skins and is […]

    $39.00in any six

    $42.00 per single bottle

    A mouthwatering combination of red fruits, roses and spice. Medium-bodied palate but with real structure and finesse. The 2016 Adelina Nebbiolo is one of the best examples of this variety found in Australia. Adelina has been working with an exciting parcel of Nebbiolo fruit from the Bowe Lees vineyard at Woodside since 2012. The Bowe […]

    $42.00 per single bottle

    Red fruits of cherry and raspberry. Sleek and soft, with plenty of body and the most perfectly judged tannins that frame and support the fruit. A hint of spice too. The 2017 Adelina Grenache comes off a tiny, old-vine two-acre parcel a stone’s throw from the iconic Wendouree vineyard and takes its muse from Emmanuel […]

    $49.00 per single bottle

    The 2017 Adelina is a stunning example of Clare Shiraz. Deep dark fruit and tannins. A seriously long and energetic finish. Demands food and/or ageing. Pristine focus and appeal with a very fluid, long and layered palate, delivering admirably in the Adelina style of restrained power. The aromas and flavors of dark plums, blackberries and […]
