Owned by Owen and Cassandra Inglis since 2004, Sidewood is already starting to get noticed. Highly respected critic James Halliday gave them a five-star rating in both 2016 and 2018 edition of Wine Companion. Made by award winning winemakers whose CVs include top wineries such as Penfolds and Shaw & Smith, this delightful Chardonnay is up there to rival the big names of Burgundy, for a fraction of the price.
Extremely elegant, refined and perfectly balanced with fresh green apples, pear and melon flavours and just the right amount of oak to add complexity.
“Wild-fermented in French barriques, matured for 10 months. The intensity and length of the fruit is exceptional, and has swallowed up the French oak without even blinking. The accent is slight more on the citrus (grapefruit) side than the stone fruit (nectarine, white peach), the finish as fresh as a spring day.” – 95pts James Halliday, The Wine Companion 2018
