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 Watervale Riesling 2020

    $23.00in any six

    $26.00 per single bottle

    As always, the 2020 Watervale hails from the Gully View vineyard, which is on red loamy clay over limestone. This is the vineyard that historically supplied Leo Buring, once the maker of Australia’s greatest Rieslings. The fruit is de-stemmed and crushed before pressing, the free-run juice then settled, racked and fermented. Col halted the ferment […]

    Adelina Polish Hill Organic Riesling 2020

    $28.00in any six

    $32.00 per single bottle

    Col McBryde has been coveting the fruit from the Smith family’s vineyard on Polish Hill River’s Rucioch Road for many years. In 2020 he finally got his hands on the goods. This mature vineyard, rooted in grey-brown loam on shale and sandy limestone, was one of the Clare’s first certified organic vineyards. This is a […]

    Adelina Chardonnay 2018

    $42.00in any six

    $46.00 per single bottle

    Sea spray and green olive, salted almond, white peach and lemon zest, but fruit is in the background. It has zing and chalky feel, like a Chardonnay-come-Manzanilla-with-a-wink-at-Jura, saline with some spice and a long slightly sharp finish. Like this. Would be ideal with salty snacks, pre-dinner. 95 points, Gary Walsh, The Winefront From a single […]

    Adelina Shiraz Mataro 2019

    $27.00in any six

    $31.00 per single bottle

    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 […]

    Adelina Grenache 2019

    $41.00in any six

    $45.00 per single bottle

    Beautiful, light garnet colour all shimmering and pretty. Just shy of medium weight, a sheath of firm but silky tannins, cherry juice, pomegranate, rose hip tea the baselines. Light spice elements, dry and savoury, exceptional structure through this wine, you feel all the ribs of grip and pucker, a skeleton draped in Something Special Grenache. […]

    Adelina Nebbiolo 2016

    $39.00in any six

    $45.00 per single bottle

    Nebbiolo can be difficult in Australia. Come to think of it, after recently tasting a dozen or so Barolos, it’s pretty hard in Italy too. Medium bodied, with a combination of red fruits, roses, tar and spice. Rich and plush, never too fruity or jammy. Fantastic tannins, definitely Nebbiolo! The 2016 Adelina Nebbiolo is one […]
