The Sidewood Story
Owners and Vignerons, Owen and Cassandra Inglis founded Sidewood in 2004 with a passion to create beautifully balanced and elegant award winning wines of the highest quality. Though their history is short, Sidewood has achieved five red-star accreditation from James Halliday and in 2016 became the largest eco sustainable winery in the Adelaide Hills. Sidewood now encompasses four individual vineyards in Oakbank, Echunga, Nairne and Verdun. The original 300 acre Oakbank vineyard is situated in the Onkaparinga Valley, 380m above sea level. Climate, soil type, an unwavering focus on excellence in viticulture combined with hand-picking and fruit selection play a vital role to ensure that only the best fruit is grown and used for Sidewood Wines. Sidewood Wines are made by internationally acclaimed Winemaker, Darryl Catlin at Sidewood’s state of the art winery at Nairne in the Adelaide Hills.
Why's this wine for you?

Remember the 2018 Sidewood Mappinga Chardonnay? We sure as heck do. It was awarded TWELVE Gold medals domestically and internationally, ranging from the 2019 Australian Wine Showcase, to the 2020 Sakura Wine Awards in Japan, to the 2020 New York International Wine Competition.

Wines like that don’t hang around too long…The good news? They come back the next year with a brand new vintage. So, here we go - the Sidewood Mappinga Chardonnay 2019!

And yes, it lives up to its predecessor.

Straight off the bat it comes from a Halliday Wine Companion 5-red star rated winery, an honour only awarded to the most outstanding producers. They’re family owned and operated and are the largest Certified Sustainable Winery in the Adelaide Hills. If that’s not an indication of commitment and quality we don’t know what is!

The fruit for the Mappinga itself is handpicked from the eponymous low-yielding vineyard and then sees ten months of French Oak (30%). After maturation the barrels are tasted and tested - only the very best go on to bear the ‘Mappinga’ name… It is this uncompromising pursuit of quality that has resulted in such an exceptional, and now world-renowned wine.

How's it taste?
This generously complex wine showcases wonderful tropical fruit aromas and rewards with delightful flavours of lychee, grapefruit and lime. Beautifully balanced with a mineral line throughout and a lingering velvety finish. Drinking beautifully now but will reward with careful cellaring.
How was it made?
Hand-picked from low yielding Dijon clones Bernard B95 and B76 at our Mappinga Road vineyard. Grapes were chilled in our cool rooms for 24 hours. Partially whole-bunch pressed, then wild-yeast fermented in 100% French oak, 30% new in larger 300 and 500 litre barrels forten months. The finest barrels then chosen to bear our flagship 'Mappinga' label.

Sam Kim - Wine Orbit
This is splendidly styled and expressed, showing white flesh peach, lemon peel, nougat and oatmeal characters on the nose. The palate is impressively weighted, delivering outstanding depth and textured mouthfeel, brilliantly structured by firm acidity.
