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.
A blend of Oberlin, 777, MV6 and Abel clones, each treated separately with various amounts of whole bunches, wild-fermented, matured for 10 months pre barrel selection. Powerful plum and forest floor aromas are deposed by the drive and complexity of the palate. Here the whole bunch component contributes another level of complexity to the black cherry fruit, oak also playing a role.
