Adelina continue to firm themselves as one of Australia's premier Nebbiolo producers, and beautiful wines like this only enhance this reputation. A mouthwatering combination of red fruits, roses and spice. Medium-bodied palate but with real structure and finesse.
Adelina has been working with an exciting parcel of Nebbiolo fruit from the Bowe Lees vineyard at Woodside in Adelaide Hills since 2012. The Bowe Lees-Loveys’ vineyard lies 390 metres above sea level and was planted between 1998 and 2002.
92/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Skeletal, transparent nebbiolo of savouriness, muted nature and yet good drinkability. The perfume is reduced in volume, showing dried rose petal, dried cranberry, puffs of clove, a waft of miscellaneous pot pourri. It’s set to dry and chalky texture, imbued with that sense of concentration of dried cranberries, but with that gentle, sweet, dried fruit richness too, and, importantly, the peaky, perky acidity that comes with that fruit. It sits tight and squeaky in the palate, mouthwatering at its conclusion. It’s a wine to spend some time with, appreciate for its structure and quiet power."
