"95 Points. The bouquet of lychee and other tropical aromas sets the scene for a palate of a plate of carefully sliced fruits and a squeeze of lemon. All of which may suggest this is just a fun sauvignon blanc, when in fact it has a beautifully poised and very long finish and aftertaste. Highway robbery at this price. Alcohol: 12% Drink By: 2020" - James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020.

"96 Points. Sidewood Estate consistently craft exceptional Sauvignon Blanc from the Adelaide Hills with this the best that I have had. The nose is punchy with guava, green apple and some sweeter lychee notes that set the wine apart from an aromatic perspective. The palate has precise acidity and a melange of fruits that are centered around green apple with sour edged passion fruit giving texture and a flowing line of acidity an important textural counterpoint. Drying and taut to finish but showing plenty of fruit. " - Patrick Eckel, winereviewer.com.au

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.

Winemaker Tash Mooney carefully selects the best parcels of fruit from the vineyard, ensuring that the fruit is picked from the vineyard at precisely the right moment. After a lot of time spent walking up and down the vineyard checking to see if the flavours are right the fruit is then picked once it has reached optimum Baume. It then begins its journey through the winery, initially focusing on keeping the juice as cool as possible. It is then pressed and fermented at 14°-15°C for only 2 weeks. It is then settled and prepared for bottling as soon as possible so that we can capture the freshness and fruit intensity of the wine.

Pale yellow in colour with bright hues, this wine displays pronounced aromas of mandarin citrus, guava, lychee with lifted notes of rose. The palate is vibrant with refreshing flavours of grapefruit, melon, citrus and green apples. This wine is driven by balanced backbone of acidity and delivers long delightful finish. This versatile wine is perfect on its own or compliments Mediterranean platters, fresh seafood dishes or a fragrant salad as a vegetarian option.
