Another Gold for Sidewood Savvy!

 In Latest News

Sidewood’s Sauvignon Blanc has been recognised as one of the best in Australia with the 2016 vintage receiving one of only two gold medals awarded in its category at the Dan Murphy’s National Wine Show in Canberra last night (24th November 2016).

A stand out wine in a pool of over 1300 premium class award winning entries from over 200 Australian producers, there was only one point separating Sidewood and the overall trophy winner of the category. In an exciting break from tradition, the Sidewood wine was served throughout the night to guests which included the most reputable in the industry; an honour usually reserved for the night’s trophy winning wines.

Sidewood owner, Owen Inglis was elated after the win on Thursday night,

“receiving a gold medal from the most reputable judges in the industry at Australia’s premier National Wine Show where being a medal winner at other top level shows is a requirement of entry makes this honour even more humbling for us.

“The accolade reflects all the hard work, effort and passion of the Sidewood team behind the scenes and I’m looking forward to sharing this celebration with them.”

The gold medal adds to the growing list of accolades for Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc.
