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 the 2016 and 2018 editions of Wine Companion. Made by award winning winemakers whose CVs include top wineries such as Penfolds and Shaw & Smith, their wines are absolutely stunning.
Only the best grapes are selected from the Sidewood estate to make the Mappinga Art Series. The winemaking philosophy is simple – to create stylish, elegant, high quality wine. Their Fumé Blanc is aged in 40% new oak barrel. Flavours of ripe pear, mandarine and lemon with a hint of sweet honeysuckle. Creamy on the palate with a delightful and a long herbaceous finish.

Hand-picked, only free-run juice barrel-fermented in French barriques (30% new) and matured for 8 months. The bouquet is exceptionally fragrant (and complex), the palate equally long and intense. Tropical to herbal fruits on display.- 96 pts James Halliday's Wine Companion
