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.
Outstanding example of a cool-climate Shiraz from the Adelaide hills, this wine presents lifted fruit flavours of red cherry, currants and dark plum on the nose. The palate intensifies with flavours of pomegranate, cinnamon and spice and a textural earthy finish with soft silky tannins.
Click below to hear more about the wine, direct from wine-maker Darryl Catlin:
This is the complete package. Cold soak, wild yeast ferment with partial whole bunch, partial whole berry, matured in French oak (25% new) for 18 months. The result is a wine of great complexity to both texture and flavour, savoury black cherry, blackberry and forest notes. Skilled winemaking with 5-star success.- 96 pts James Halliday, The Wine Companion
