Adelina Watervale Riesling 2019-White Wine-World Wine
Adelina Watervale Riesling 2019

The Wine Front – White flower perfume, apple and sweet lemon, quite a bit of spice too. Intense burst of flavour, all juicy lemon with a little citrus rind bitterness, a lot of acid crunch and pumice stone texture, then a riot of grapefruit sorbet on a long spicy finish. Woah. Here’s a wine that’s packing in plenty of action in every glass. Tops.

Adelina Shiraz Mataro 2019-Red Wine-World Wine
Adelina Shiraz Mataro 2019

The Wine Front – “Wonderful wine. Boysenberry, hazelnuts, charcuterie and charred sticks, chocolate and spice, and no doubt many other things. Medium bodied, assertive but beautiful crushed rock tannin, cool ‘minerally’ acidity, a spray of dried herb perfume through vivacious purple and blue fruits. Finish is chompy, tasty and long. Here’s a wine!” 95 points, Gary Walsh,


Jancis Robinson – “A blend of 70% Shiraz and 30% Mataro (Mourvèdre), sourced from both Adelina's own vineyards and nearby sites. This is the most immediately expressive and vibrant of the three reds when first opened and poured, redolent of damp black earth and hints of iodine and graphite – characters often found in the red wines of Adelina's famous neighbour Wendouree. With air and time, the various flavour components mellowed and gave way to glossy black fruit.” Max Allen,

Adelina Shiraz 2019-Red Wine-World Wine
Adelina Shiraz 2019

The Wine Front – “Boysenberry, mint, hazelnut, spicy oak in the background. Medium bodied, a light glossiness, but the firm dusting of emery tannin sweeps it all clean, the acidity fresh-berried, bursting small-berry flavour, and super length. Intensity, balance, regionality. Superb.” 96 points, Gary Walsh,


World Wine – Another excellent Clare Shiraz from a region whose long Shiraz-capability is, thankfully, becoming better understood.


Jancis Robinson – “This, made from century-old Shiraz vines, is the biggest and burliest of the three 2017 Adelina reds when first opened. Rich, dense, opaque black fruit and dark, solid, grippy tannins. In fact, when I tried them, I initially overlooked the Shiraz in favour of the complexity and subtlety of the [2016 Grenache and 2016 Shiraz/Mataro]. But the wine really came into its own over the next few days, becoming more giving and generous, the tannins yielding to a gentler hug. A thoroughly seductive wine in the end.” Max Allen,
