Fans of Sauvignon Blanc, back up the truck. This is a steal. This estate grown wine displays all the things that have seen Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc touted as arguably the best in the country. It's crisp and dry yet loaded with flavour, the sort of wine that is the first to disappear out of the esky at a BBQ. It received a massive 95 points from James Halliday and was one of only two wines to be awarded a Gold Medal at the 2016 National Wine Show. Classic. Classy. And tip top value.
What it Tastes Like
"Estate-grown and selected from several sites with different row orientation, the state of the art Pellenc harvester delivering flawless berries. Free-run juice chilled, wild yeast, cool fermented in tank, and kept on lees for 4 months to successfully build mid-palate texture without compromising its drive and length." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

Viticulture The Sidewood Vineyard is situated at the 300 acre Ashwood Estate in the cool-climate of the Adelaide Hills wine region, 380m above sea level. Climate, soil, careful pruning techniques and hand -picking play a vital role to ensure that only the best fruit is produced for Sidewood Wines. With the rows of vineyards planted facing East - West, this ensures that combined with intensive canopy management the intensity of the fruit flavour profile will be enhanced. Vinification Winemaker Darryl Catlin carefully selects the best parcels of fruit from the Sidewood Estate vineyard, ensuring that the fruit is picked at precisely the right moment. After a lot of time spent walking up and down the vineyard checking to see if the flavours are right, the fruit is then picked once it has reached optimum Baume. It then begins its journey through the Sidewood winery, initially focusing on keeping the juice as cool as possible. It is then pressed and fermented at 14°-15°C for only 2 weeks. It is then settled and prepared for bottling as soon as possible so that we can capture the freshness and fruit intensity of the wine.
