Vine Mind is a side project of Adelina main man Col McBryde. The man has a way with Riesling and this 2016 release is just one more confirmation of his skills. This has a generosity that you don't often find in young Clare Valley Riesling. Sure it's still tight and mouthwatering but the juicy citrus fruit that infiltrates the mouth is so succulent you never want to stop drinking it.
What it Tastes Like
"Great perfume here, love seeing a little blackcurrant in the lemon/lime, green herb, wet slate mix of things. It’s aromatic as all get out, soft and juicy in the palate. That juiciness does have a bit of a neat click of tangy acidity though, and there’s subtle chalkiness to the texture that makes things extra interesting. Fine, feathery, yet flavoursome riesling here. Delicious drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
93 points. "Clare Valley riesling has so long been stalwart in its presentation and representation, so it’s great to see a little visual funk alongside a loosening up of the style too. Here’s an example. From a single site and the team behind Adelina wines. Great perfume here, love seeing a little blackcurrant in the lemon/lime, green herb, wet slate mix of things.

About the Producer
Vine Mind is a tiny Clare Valley producer led by popular wine personalities Colin McBryde and Jennie Gardner, who also head up the daring Adelina and Some Young Punks labels. Their wines are made in tiny quantities, beautifully packaged and made to tell different stories of their much-loved home region. The wines come exclusively from the Clare Valley and are made in an interesting, yet approachable style. Top value to boot from this powerhouse winemaking duo.
The Clare Valley knows what it does, and does it very, very well. Riesling and Shiraz are the rockstars of the region and with some of the most famous wines in the county coming from this small pocket of SA, the Clare’s reputation for quality only grows year on year.
Riesling is the king of white grapes. With unparalleled versatility, it rightfully carries the ‘Noble’ name tag. We make extraordinary Riesling in Australia, from far and wide. From the classic searing, razor-sharp styles in the Clare and Eden Valleys to the fragrant and enchanting wines of the Great Southern, Australian Riesling is a chameleon that can take on many forms. Sweet, steely, lean or textured, the world of Riesling is a thing of wonder that should be explored by all true lovers of wine.
