Description

Col McBryde and Jen Gardner are Adelina. A pair of smart cookies, each rocking a PhD in microbiology, they have together formed one of the Clare Valley's most esteemed and exciting wineries, based around their family-owned, meticulously farmed 110+-year-old vineyard.

From what began as a small, colourful operation back in 2002, Adelina has slowly but surely established itself as one of the finest quality grape growers and wine producers in the country.  Whether their scintillating Rieslings, fresh-faced red blends, or remarkably complex premium Estate offerings, there is detail, intrigue and sheer deliciousness in every Adelina bottle.

This 6 pack features the full range of gorgeous Adelina reds, and is the perfect way to explore this much-loved artisan producer.

  • 2022 Adelina McLaren Vale Shiraz
  • 2022 Adelina Cabernet Franc
  • 2022 Adelina Shiraz Mataro
  • 2022 Adelina Introspect Field Blend
  • 2022 Adelina Estate Grenache
  • 2022 Adelina Estate Shiraz

2022 Adelina McLaren Vale Shiraz

Col McBryde at Adelina wanted to make a Shiraz that was a little different to their usual one - a bit more dark and broody, but still keeping the classic Adelina style.

So Col sourced some certified organic fruit from the McLaren Vale, coming from a ripper site in Kangarilla managed by two impeccable growers, Yanagrra's Michael Lane and Pete Fraser. We all know what great fruit and a deft touch equals.

It's got a focus more on dark fruit flavour than their Clare Valley reds, with chewy tannin and a bit more of a broodiness to its personality. Still inherently Adelina in style, it's something a little different - and incredibly delicious. Read More

2022 Adelina Cabernet Franc

This is Adelina's beautiful Cab Franc release from the now organic-certified Smith vineyard in the Polish Hill River sub-region. Fruit was all destemmed, with just a few days spent on skins, then spent eight months maturing in old French barriques.

Satiny mid-weight Clare Valley red, replete with cherry and strawberry aromatic, and a pure, clean-living palate.

It's fresh, with delicious, red-berry juiciness and a herbal, peppery backbone. Joyous wine. Read More

2022 Adelina Shiraz Mataro

The Adelina Shiraz Mataro showcases the exquisite old vine Clare Valley fruit that Jen Gardner and Col McBryde have at their disposal.

Over half of the fruit is sourced from vineyards 100+ years old, these are some of the Clare Valley's most precious and respected vineyards.

The wine itself is treated with the typical Adelina care: wild ferments, gentle handling, and this year a portion fermented in concrete. This is yet another remarkable release, delivering a flavour-packed yet elegant representation of old-vine Clare Valley fruit.

As a complete package, this is unbeatable value and one of the best reds pound-for-pound in the Clare Valley. Read More

2022 Adelina Introspect Field Blend

The Introspect Field Blend is an unusual blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro, Ugni Blanc, Roussanne and Carignan, from a now-certified organic vineyard above the winery in the Clare Valley.

The vines (originally Cabernet) were planted back in 1976, then in 2015 Col and Jen grafted them over to this mad selection of red and white Rhone varieties. They picked the lot together, fermented them together and bottled the result after a nice sleep in old oak.

It's a light but savoury red wine, with delicious bright red fruit, a hint of mint, and soft graphitey tannins. A strange yet lovely offering from this star Clare Valley producer. Read More

2022 Adelina Estate Grenache

Adelina Estate, led by Col McBryde and Jen Gardner, is hitting all the right notes with their latest releases. Their elegant, understated packaging, exceptional old vine fruit, and distinctive 'house style' are solidifying their reputation as one of the finest producers in the Clare Valley.

The Grenache exemplifies the 'new wave' of Australian Grenache—fine-boned and high-toned. Sourced from an 80-year-old vineyard on the Adelina property, this Grenache bursts with aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, almonds, mint, and a rosy perfume. Freshness and age-worthiness reign supreme here, with a rocky, mineral feel on the finish, this is a bright, perfumed, and individual expression of Clare Valley's terroir. Superb stuff and top of the tree for Grenache in the Clare, no doubt.

Produced in limited quantities, with only 2,304 bottles made. Rated 95+ points by Gary Walsh and 95 points by Erin Larkin, this wine is a superb example of what Grenache can achieve in the hands of skilled winemakers. Read More

2022 Adelina Estate Shiraz

A future classic for Clare Valley Shiraz in the making from Col McBryde and Jen Gardner.

Grown on gnarly old centurion vines in some of the region's finest grape-growing land, the vineyard features a unique soil mix of red sand, clay, slate, and limestone. The grapes, grown at 460m elevation, benefit from organic farming certified by ACO.

This is a knockout Shiraz of intensity, class, and immense potential. It's Clare Valley through and through. Bold and striking, showing regional mint and purple fruit on a bedrock of incredibly impressive tannin.

Produced in extremely limited quantities, the Adelina Estate Shiraz is a stunning, true blue Aussie expression of century-old vines. This is the beauty of some of the Clare Valley's finest terroir writ large. Read More

With vineyards dating back to 1910, the estate includes Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro, Malbec, and a unique field blend.

Their wines are known for delicacy, purity, and terroir expression, featuring old vine Shiraz and Mataro, exceptional Nebbiolo, and vibrant Rieslings. The 80-year-old Grenache vines produce fine-boned, high-toned wines, while the Shiraz showcases bold flavors and impressive tannins.

Sustainability is central to their approach, with minimal water use, manual weeding, and maintaining native scrub. They are also pursuing carbon-neutral certification. Adelina Wines embodies quality and innovation, offering wines that reflect their unique terroir and sustainable practices.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
