This week we are presenting a very special cider from New Zealand. A project from Mark and Sophie McGill, the Abel Cider is a unique product that is making its Ontario debut.

Sophie’s parents, James & Wendy Healy have been in the wine industry for over 40 years. Working with the iconic Cloudy Bay and then going on to co-establish Dog Point Vineyard in Marlborough. Mark’s Dad Linton has been a viticulturist for just as long, working throughout New Zealand and then planting a vineyard in the Wairarapa in the early 90’s.

2018 Abel Méthode Cider

Abel Methode Cider is made in small quantities each vintage from freshly harvested apples and pears. All fruit is hand-picked, milled, then fermented dry.

The cider is unfined and unfiltered. The cider is allowed to naturally clarify by gravity, using this process helps preserve the natural fruit characteristics.

Abel cider is fermented in bottle like champagne. This natural carbonation gives a finer bubble which retains aromas and flavours.

Abel Methode Cider is bone dry with zero sugar (glucose/fructose).

Aromas of brioche, sherbet, green apple skin, pear spice, wine biscuit and florals. The palate is extraordinary refreshing – lime, lemon, crushed ice, apple pip and a moreish leesy texture that leads through to freshly cut apple and a typical bone dry finish

$16.99/btl. – case of 6
