Expert Reviews

95 Points - Gary Walsh - The Wine FrontGrown on the Gullyview vineyard, planted 2001, terracotta red dirt on lime base. Exotic spice, talc and lavender over juicy lime. It’s explosive with tight acidity, a fine chalk dust grip and texture, a tingle of ripe lemon, subtle sweetness, pulling tight and very long on the pure and mineral laced finish. It’s a beautiful thing. Tension and flavour. No harm in smashing this one now, either.

Who made it?

The Adelina vineyards are situated in Spring Farm Valley, just south of the township of Clare. Their neighbours include the vineyards of Wendouree, Aberfeldy and Sevenhill Cellars. The small Adelina plantings were originally established around 1910; mostly Shiraz and Grenache with small plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. The vineyard is right next door to Birk’s Wendouree so we know the terroir is good! The Gardner family has owned the Spring Farm Estate, which is the site of both the Adelina winery and vineyards, since 1986. Prior to the inception of Adelina Wines in 2000, the property was managed by Will and Elaine Gardner, and the fruit was sold to Tim Adams. In 2002, Col McBryde and Jen Gardner, Will and Elaine’s daughter, took over responsibility for the vineyards and launched Adelina wines which are made exclusively from the Estate vineyards. The pair has been involved in winemaking and research since the mid-90s.
