From Arneis vines planted in 1997, this is 85% tank ferment with the rest being barrel fermented with indigenous yeast to build a bit of funk and complexity. This is a well made wine. Talc, mineral, soda, pear saline, hint KP Mango. Light, silky, lick of oak. Long finishing. Pure. Clean. Delicate, mineral and citric is would be great for cutting through spicy or oily foods. Drink over the next 2-3 years.
The Adelina brand started in 2000 from a family-run vineyard in the Clare Valley. The vineyard was well established, initially planted in 1910. Using the family vineyard and fruit sourced from quality growers they craft wines that are clean and pure with great complexity.
This is a big and varied region that basically stretches from the top of the McLaren Vale all the way to the bottom of the Barossa. This means there is a big scope for climatic conditions. In the central part where its altitude is quite high, you can get some of the best sites in the world for Sparkling wine. In the slightly warmer parts of the centre, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme with Riesling, Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc worthy of honourable mentions.
The most complex of the whites used in Piedmont. It makes mid-weight wines tasting of sour apple, grapefruit and white flowers.
