About The Wine
Col and Jen at Adelina make a very good fist at an Italianate expression of Rosé/Rosato.
They have had great success with Nebbiolo made in this style in the past - here they take on two other Italian varieties: Dolcetto and Barbera.
It's crisp and nervy with citrus and fresh red fruits. Some wild flowers and plenty of fresh spices fill the air.
If you want dry, savoury Rosé with a bit of grunt, this is a great place to look.
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.
