About The Wine

The Adelina Shiraz Mataro showcases the exquisite old vine Clare Valley fruit that Jen Gardner and Col McBryde have at their disposal.

Over half of the fruit in the 2017 release is sourced from vineyards 100+ years old. The Mataro component is grown on the famous Wendouree vineyard. It's treated with the typical Adelina care: wild ferments, gentle handling, and this year a portion fermented in concrete.

This vintage is a little lighter on its feet than the heroic 2016, a more restrained and elegant representation of old-vine Clare Valley fruit.

As a complete package, this is remarkable value and one of the best pound-for-pound reds in the Clare Valley.

About Adelina

Col McBryde and Jennie Gardner are Adelina. A pair of smart cookies, each rocking a PhD in microbiology and between them some pretty serious winemaking chops. Together, they have formed one of the Clare Valley's most exciting wineries.

From what was a small operation that began in 2002, slowly but surely the Adelina brand has been picking up steam.

There is a delicacy and purity inherent in every wine they produce. From opulent old vine Shiraz and Mataro, to one of the country's most excellent Nebbiolo and a set of scintillating Rieslings, there is a sense of class and refinement to the whole project.

These meticulously crafted, beautifully presented wines are just a joy to drink.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Lighter than last year, showing smoked meat, raspberry, sweet earth and savoury slity tannins. More of a 'Syrah' style, than ball-busting Aussie Shiraz. Juicy and smooth with tart red fruit through the finish. Lovely wine. - Different Drop Wine Team
