Sidewood Estate Mappinga Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2016
Masterful Chardonnay from Sidewood with FOUR Gold and 95pts from Halliday. Truly excellent.
This 95-pt FOUR Gold gem is from a pristine Adelaide Hills estate owned by Owen and Cassandra Inglis. It is “... part-vineyard and part-horse stables and racehorse training ...both aspects of the business are flourishing...” (Halliday). “The best parcels of fruit... whole-bunch pressed, the free-run juice wild-fermented and matured for 10 months in new and used French oak. Golds at Adelaide, NZ and Spain an interesting trifecta. More important is the sheer quality, purity and length of a beautifully crafted (and grown) wine. It hasn’t put a foot wrong at any point along the way, instead conjuring up a combination of crisp acidity and softness ... 95 points” (Halliday).
