Adelina Polish Hill River Riesling 2022 (Clare Valley, South Australia)


Adelina’s Polish Hill River Riesling is drawn from Lyn and Robert Jaeschke’s Hill River Estate, planted in 2000 at 460 metres above sea level on grey-brown loam over shale and sandy limestone. The fruit was destemmed and crushed before pressing, then the free-run juice was settled, racked and fermented to dryness. 
Bone dry and just shy of 11%, it’s a more restrained release than the Watervale. Col notes that his wines from this site are getting finer every year, and this is a great example of the progression.

Laser-guided wet stone, jasmine and lime skin on the nose give rise to a tightly coiled palate wrapped around a crystalline spine of acidity. An Australian Riesling of wonderful grace and class.

"Full of swagger, this release from Adelina is full-throated and unapologetic. Quite the nose buffet; peaches, lemons, kiwi fruit and vanilla offset with an elegant minerality. But the kicker is in the mouth. Like a Toorak tycoon on Christmas afternoon this wine is rich and full, revealing an "un-Australian" but delightful smack of residual sugar alongside a bracing zippiness. Passionfruit, yellow citrus, more stone fruits and a touch of herbaceousness all present but this beauty is all about the 'feels'. Want food with it? Hit up your local Szechuan restaurant." - Erez Gordon, Carboot Wines
