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. Awarded a Gold Medal at Sydney International Wine Competition 2017.
