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.

Five clones, mainly Selectiv’-harvested, a small portion hand-picked and vineyard-sorted for whole bunches, matured in French oak (25% new) for 13 months. Seriously satisfying, every aspect explored and finessed, ripe black fruits the core. Drink to: 2045; Price: $25.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 97 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

There is more than a subtle nod to the Rhône Valley with this release. The wine spent 18 months in oak and enjoys the trappings from a cooler year. There is an iodine thread to blackberry and plum fruit with subtle oak and leather nuances on the nose. The palate is built around dense plum fruits that are dusted with pepper and earth. Tannins give savoury support and are drying but work well with charcuterie notes and generosity of dark berry fruits to finish. The wine is drinking well now and over the medium term. Drink to: 2019 - 2029; Price: $25.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 93 Points; Patrick Eckel; The Wine Reviewer

A beautiful and enticing shiraz that shows blueberry compote, dried meat, balsamic and tar. Medium body, structured tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now. Screw cap. Rating: 93 Points; James Suckling
