Reviews and Ratings

Perry rated this wine as 91/100
From the Adelaide Hills wine region, Sidewood 2017 Shiraz is produced from sustainably-grown wine grapes, hand-harvested and sorted. Fresh and earthy with blackberry, cherry, liquorice, mint and pepper spice flavours on the palate with lingering fine-grained tannins. Matured in French oak barrels for 13 months. Great value at $20 and a good, long-term cellaring candidate. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
