2017 Adelina Eternal Return Dolcetto

Adelaide Hills, SA

Juicy and vibrant Dolcetto from the Adelaide Hills.



About The Wine

The Eternal Return wines by Adelina are some fantastic value examples of Italian varieties. 

This is the first release of a Dolcetto into the range. It was grown in the Adelaide Hills on vines planted in 2006 and brought to bottle with Colin McBryde's precision and care.

The great thing about this Dolcetto is its easy approachability. The fruit is ripe a clear. It's juicy and downright delicious to drink. 

If you've never tied this great Italian variety before, this is the perfect place to start.

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

Bunchy, red berried, some amaro almost Vermouth-like lift on the nose. The tannins are fine and sandy and nicely drying. Dolcetto's signature bright acidity runs through the core. Fresh, lively and medium bodied. A hint of mint. Spicy. All in all, you get the right amount of juicy fruit and a dry moreish finish. Bang on. Hand me the antipasto. - Different Drop Wine Team
