Description

Sidewood is a family owned winery located in the Adelaide Hills, which is considered cool climate for Australia (maybe not for NZ!). Their aim is to produce elegant wines of the highest quality, which has been born true, with their 2013 Mappinga Shiraz winning World’s Best Shiraz (2015 Decanter). This 2018 is also exceptional having picked up 96/100 and a Special Value Star from James Halliday, Australia’s most respected wine critic.

Smells

A lovely combination of dark fruits, plums and blackberries with high tone red fruits, combined with dark chocolate, coffee grinds and hints of mint.

Tastes

It’s like halfway between a Kiwi Syrah and a Barossa Shiraz; plush ripe fruit which is reined in by cranberry crunch, cedar, spice and minty notes. Charming mouth coating tannins with zesty acidity and toasty vanilla flavours on the finish. The oak is completely integrated and adds complexity and structure rather than dominating. Cellar for 8-10 years as this is a baby. This needs a big, juicy steak.
