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

    $27.00 per single bottle

    This is one of our favourite wines from the 2019 Riesling Galaxy tasting. Adelina’s Polish Hill River Riesling 2018 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, […]

    Adelina Watervale Riesling 2018

    $23.00in any six

    $27.00 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. It’s hard to believe this is a hot, dry vintage. There is so much freshness here.  Full of tension and off-dry, the sweetness is barely perceptible, balancing the wine nicely. Adelina’s Watervale […]

    $27.00 per single bottle

    Adelina’s Polish Hill River Riesling is pure and then some! The 2019 is easily as good as the 2018, which is as good as the 2017! You get the drift. Whenever you’re looking for an affordable bottle to match with anything this is it. Precise, composed and tense; the citrus fruit hovers over a bed […]

    $23.00in 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 […]

    Adelina Refusal To Lie Chardonnay 2017

    $25.00in any six

    $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 […]

    $27.00in any six

    $31.00 per single bottle

    2017 is a lovely vintage, and all of Adelina’s wines are a triumph. This cracker from the Clare Valley is absolutely packed with red fruits. Cherries, red currants, cranberries and raspberries burst on the nose and palate. The sweetest fruits, tangy acidity and savoury tannins make for a delicious, medium-bodied bistro wine. The 2017 Adelina […]

    “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 […]

    $27.00in any six

    $33.00 per single bottle

    The Adelina Nebbiolo Rosato 2018 is a knockout. Along with Nocturne, they make the finest Nebbiolo based Rose in Australia. 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. Shimmering, mouth-watering rosé from the top draw. At once dry, […]

    For lovers of Pinot Noir, Gamay, Syrah, the 2016 Adelina Grenache is a knockout. Gone is the flabby structure, jammy fruit and cordial colour. Medium bodied, fluid and graceful. Red and black cherries, strawberry, five spice, blueberry and currant. All wrapped around a javelin of silky tannins. Game changer Grenache and a beautiful wine in […]

    What can I say. When I thought it was impossible to better the wonderful 2016, this wine rolls along. The 2017 Adelina Grenache is as good, better. Red fruits of cherry and raspberry, blueberry too. Sleek and soft, with plenty of body and the most perfectly judged tannins that frame and support the fruit. A […]

    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 […]

    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 […]
