    Adelina 'Polish Hill River' Riesling 2017

    Adelina 'Polish Hill River' Riesling 2017

    From Hill River Estate, planted in 2000 on grey brown loam on shale and sandy limestone. The Polish Hill River fruit is handpicked, whole bunch pressed, fermented and raised in stainless tanks. The difference here is that the balance of fruit and acidity is such that Col ferments the Polish Hill River bone-dry, whereas the Watervale is bottled with a little residual. It's the more linear expression of the two Rieslings but it's no less impressive. 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.

    Producer

    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.

    Region

    South Australia’s Clare Valley, besides being one of Australia’s prettiest wine regions, is ground-zero for Riesling and a large selection of the countries finest examples. Approximately 120km north of Adelaide, the Clare Valley boasts a great diversity of soil types and a number of famous sub-regions along its length such as Polish Hill River, Watervale, Leasingham, Sevenhill and the Skillogalee Valley. Clare Valley Riesling is vivid in its purity, always having a reputation for being very precise and driven, though in recent times, we are seeing some producers play with skin contact and seasoned oak adding to the regions interest. It isn’t only white varieties that shine in the Clare with Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz do particularly well and it is the home of the stellar red wines of Australian wine royalty, Wendouree. Local Knowledge: The breakfast ramen at ‘`Seed’ in Clare with a glass of German Kabinett Riesling is a stroke of genius.
