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.

    $24.00 $21.00in any six

    $27.00 per single bottle

    The 2019 Watervale Riesling from Adelina is delightful. It’s off-dry, with an enticing perfume of lemon, grapefruit and spice. Gorgeous filigree texture, interwoven with lemon and limes. The finish is chalky and full of tension. The sweetness is judged perfectly. Absolute bargain, and a refreshing take on Clare Valley Riesling. The Adelina Watervale Riesling 2019 […]

    $29.00 per single bottle

    I’m becoming a fan of Piccadilly Chardonnay and this is one of the reasons why. Adelina can make anything delightful, but this is gorgeous. The 2017 Chardonnay is rich, textural and full bodied, but not fat. There’s a real wildness here. Nougat, peach, lime, faint oak and honey, jostle for attention. Wonderful drive and the […]

    $29.00 per single bottle

    They do a good job of Arneis at Adelina, and most often it’s way less greasy, and tighter than many of its Italian comrades. A little bit floral, raw almond, bitter lemon and the like, with a chalky texture, good energy, lightness of frame, and a crunchy textured finish of fine length. It’s a yes […]

    “There’s a wealth of vibrant dark plums here with a deep, herb and asphalt edge as well. The palate carries a very plush, fresh and lively feel with impressive depth and elegance. A blend of 68% shiraz and 32% mataro. Drink or hold. Screw cap.” 94 points, Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com “Medium weight, fine tannins, layers […]

    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 […]

    $46.00 per single bottle

    Adelina’s Grenache – an ode to Emmanuel Reynaud’s legendary Château Rayas – is sourced from an Estate-owned, old-vine 2-acre parcel planted in 1942 on dessicated grey loams. Otherwise known as the Springvale block, or Block 2, it’s also just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Wendouree vineyard. Talk about standing on the shoulders of […]

    $53.00 per single bottle

    The 2017 Adelina Shiraz is stunning. Clare Valley Shiraz doesn’t get more elegant than this. But the richness of fruit is immense. Deep dark fruit, a waft of oak spice and the finest tannins. Very long and energetic finish, the fruit really draws it out, not the structure. Amazing really. I’m not sure whether to […]
