Lovely wine. Stylish.
About The Wine
Adelina continue to firm themselves as one of Australia's premier Nebbiolo producers. Beautiful wines like this only enhance this reputation.
This wine comes from the Bowe-Lees vineyard in Woodside, Adelaide Hills. The Nebbiolo vines here were planted between 1998 and 2002 - tragically, this vineyard was lost to the 2020 Adelaide Hills bushfires, so this wine serves as a legacy for this gorgeous vineyard.
The fruit spent a whopping 95 days resting on skins and went to sleep in old large barrels for just over a year before bottling.
It's a very easy wine to be enchanted by - breezy but with the firm, granitic tannin that is Nebbiolo's signature.
A great example of exceptional Australian Nebbiolo. A limited release, so get in quick.
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.
