Congratulations are in order as Adelaide Hills’ own Sidewood Estate wins yet another award for their famous Sauvignon Blanc, making it the most awarded ‘Savvy’ in Australia in the past 8 years.
This news comes with the announcement of the winners of the Royal Perth Wine Awards, where the Sidewood Estate 2021 Sauvignon Blanc took out the Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc, the top prize in its category. This is one of the hardest shows to win based on the strength of Sauvignon (and blends) from the Western Australian producers. This is the first time an SA producer has won the ‘top gong’ since 2013.
So, what makes this wine so special?
Their Sauvignon Blanc is made with 100% Adelaide Hills fruit, most from their Estate at Oakbank. The team at Sidewood Estate is passionate about Sauvignon Blanc because it is well suited to the cool-climate the Adelaide Hills provides and our vineyards are the coolest in the Adelaide Hills.
The wine is from a low yielding vineyard, low sulphur and like all Sidewood wines and ciders, 100% vegan friendly.
As we are heading towards the warmer weather, many of us will be opting for a fresh, crisp white over the traditional reds of winter. If you are looking for the perfect food to pair with the Sidewood Estate Sauvignon Blanc, they highly recommend pairing it with spicy Asian foods, chicken, any kind of seafood and of course, it also pairs great with a good cheese platter.
Next time you are in the Hahndorf area, make sure you head to their cellar door and sample the wine with one of their most popular menu items, the pan seared scallops with tagliatelle and hazelnut butter. Our mouth is already watering.
Sidewood Restaurant and Cellar Door has quickly become a popular tourist destination in the Adelaide Hills. Since opening in January 2020, they have expanded from not only a cellar door and restaurant facility but now boast experiences such as luxury day beds, lawn bowls & Petanque courts, outdoor fire pits with nature play and activities for the children and the recent addition of our outdoor alfresco courtyard with outdoor food and beverage bar.
Most recently, they have launched a new cellar door site with tasting bar, wine masterclasses, and a private dining space.
