About

Adelina are kicking some serious goals as of late.

Their stylish packaging, the amazing old vine fruit they utilise, the ‘house style’ of the wines, all coming up trumps for this Clare Valley duo. Their recent reviews reflect this, the new releases seem to have gone to the next level. Good on them. Their Grenache fits squarely in the ‘new wave’ of Grenache sweeping the Australian wine industry. This is a finer boned, more delicate and complex style of Grenache.

The fruit from Block 2 on this stunning 80+-year-old vineyard on their estate is left on skins for 50 days in concrete vats prior to pressing to neutral barrels. This extracts maximum character from the fruit in its purest form.

Freshness and age worthiness reign supreme here. As Mike Bennie described it in his cracking 95 point review as “A superb example of grenache at the apex. Wonderful drinking.”. We love this style of Grenache, it is the future of the variety in this country and this one is mixing it with the best.

What It Tastes Like

“This is seriously good. Pinot lovers will like the lithe frame of the wine, nebbiolo fanciers will go for the tannin here. It’s pungent in cranberry, rose water, raspberry jelly and a flourish of briar/dried herbs. Just under medium weight, the wine pools in the palate with clear, bright berry-soft jammy fruit flavours, ribbons of al dente tannins, amaro-like acidity. Long, detailed, delicious. A superb example of grenache at the apex. Wonderful drinking.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
