Sidewood 2017 ‘Abel’ Pinot Noir


The Wine: Sidewood 2017 ‘Abel’ Pinot Noir

The Sidewood Abel Pinot Noir was handpicked from South Australia’s first plantings of the clone. Wild yeast and small batch ferment, followed by maturation in French oak bring aromas of fresh rhubarb, plums and lifted forest floor to the wine. The palate combines the rhubarb and spiced plums with chalky tannins and a seamless strawberry and cream finish.

“Legend holds that the Abel clone first travelled from one of the best vineyards of Burgundy by way of a gumboot. Making its way to New Zealand in 1975, the ‘Gumboot Smuggler’ was caught by a NZ Customs’ officer, Malcolm Abel, who incidentally was the first to plant the mythical cutting on his vineyard.

The Origins:

Owners and Vignerons, Owen and Cassandra Inglis founded Sidewood in 2004 borne of their uncompromising vision and passion for creating beautifully balanced, elegant, award-winning wines.

Despite Sidewood being a relatively new brand in the wine industry, it has already achieved Five Red Star Accreditation from James Halliday and in 2016 became the largest eco-sustainable winery in the Adelaide Hills.
