About The Wine

Adelina is on a serious roll - another ripper wine here.

Their home is in the Clare Valley and though their range is beginning to roam a little further afield, the choice of a Riesling site was a no-brainer. This vineyard in the famous Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare was planted in 2000, with perfect soils for producing first class Riesling.

There are many reasons that PHR is the most famous region in the country for producing Riesling; the consistency and the purity of the fruit not the least of them. This Riesling sings of its home. It's beautiful drinking, and unbeatable value.

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

Laser focus, here. Tight, steely, lemon/lime with a granny smith apple crunch. There's more generosity in this release from 2018. An iron bar of acidity holds the wine firm. It's classic Polish Hill. Lean and mean and with a big future ahead. Great value, too. - Different Drop Wine Team
