Australia, SA, Clare Valley


Wine Front 94 Points!

"Musky and exotic spicy perfume, lime, chalky things. Juicy and limey, powdery texture, intensity, length. As pretty as an Adelina label. Softness and seduction of Watervale in full flight."

Gary Walsh, Wine Front, October 2018

"Adelina's Watervale hails from quality dirt. The mature Gulley View vineyard, on red loamy clay over limestone, historically supplied by Leo Buring, once the maker of countless outstanding Rieslings.

The fruit here is handpicked and whole bunch pressed before being fermented and raised in stainless tanks. Col halts the ferment with around 5 g/L residual sugar to balance the muscular acidity that this terroir delivers. 2018 has produced a set of Adelina Rieslings with more succulence and power than 2017, yet there's no getting away from the fact that here we have an Australian Riesling of wonderful grace and class."
