TROPHY for Sidewood Sauvignon at Royal Melbourne!

 In Latest News

Sidewood is delighted to announce that our 2017 Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc has won the Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc or Blend of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc at the Royal Melbourne Wine Awards.

Winning the award is a huge achievement, made even more poignant in that this is the very first time a South Australian Winery has won Best Sauvignon Blanc, from Australia’s most prestigious and important wine show.

Sidewood’s Sauvignon Blanc has this year already won Gold medals from the KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show and the Perth Royal Wine Awards. This Trophy at Melbourne continues to cement our position as one of Australia’s finest producers of premium Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Sauvignon Blanc last took a gold at the Royal Melbourne in 2015, and we are proud to say that our Sauvignon Blanc has won medals at ‘every’ major Royal show in Australia for the last three years (Royal Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth).

Sidewood is the largest sustainable grower in the Adelaide Hills and our Sauvignon Blanc is a 100% single vineyard wine, grown at our Mappinga Road vineyard in Oakbank under the watchful eye of Viticulturalist, Mark Vella and his Vitiworks team. Head Winemaker, Darryl Catlin then carefully hand-crafts our fruit into our award-winning wine at Sidewood’s own boutique winery at Nairne in the Adelaide Hills.
