About The Wine
There are a pidgeon-pair of Rieslings from the Clare Valley made by Col & Jen at Adelina.
The Watervale Riesling is traditionally a touch sweeter than the Polish Hill River. Col & Jen usually opting to leave a trace of sweetness in the finished wine for more approachability.
The 2018 release is smoking. It's drier than previous years, but the roundness and juiciness here is Clare Valley Riesling at it's mouthwatering best.
Balanced on a knife edge, this is a whip-smart Riesling release from the Adelina duo.
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.
