Sidewood Sauvignon Blanc paired Fish Tacos

 In Recipes

Let’s TACO bout’ the refreshing and complementary combination of this fish taco recipe and our award winning 2017 Sidewood Estate Sauvignon Blanc!

Head Winemaker, Darryl Catlin carefully selects the best parcels of fruit for our award winning Sauvignon Blanc from Sidewood’s main vineyard on Mappinga road in Oakbank. Currently THE top producing region in Australia, Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc’s are typically vibrant, dry with exceptional fruit definition, length and crispness. Picked at 4am, the fruit is kept as cool as possible and is pressed as soon as it arrives at the winery before being fermented at 14 – 15 degrees for two weeks.

The perfect summer pairing, the citrus notes in our Sauvignon Blanc balance out the spiciness of the dish and its savoury minerality and herbaceous notes.
