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 Sidewood’s single-clonal releases – Oberlin, 777 and Abel sourced from a single vineyard at Oakbank. An interesting tension between the tussle of red and black fruit that makes for a complex palate. A smart combination, the sum of many parts being more appealing than the individual clones. Rating: 96 Points; David Sly; Decanter

The 2019 is a wonderful combination of quality fruit and the subtle nuance that comes from some very deliberate and well made choices in the winery. Whole bunch and whole berry fermentation has been used to wonderful effect with a floral red cherry lift and earthy, smoky impact that keeps giving you more over time. The palate is framed by red cherry and rhubarb fruit that is interjected by gentle spice and layers of wet earth and understated savoury impact. Tannins are compact, but grow in stature and will underwrite plenty of future development, to close dark cherry is lifted by subtle spice before a drying, long finish. Rating: 95 Points; Patrick Eckel, Wine Reviewer

Four clones from the estate Oakbank vineyard, 20% whole bunches included. Fragrant with crushed red berries and flowering blackcurrant, slipping into black cherry. There's a delicate sourness and tangy acidity, lifting energy levels on the palate with light tannins holding everything together.
