Adelaide Hills Shiraz conquers USA

 Sidewood’s Mappinga Reserve Shiraz 2012 from the Adelaide Hills won a double gold and has been named best red wine at the 2015 Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America competition held in Florida last week.

Owen Inglis, Sidewood vigneron, said the international exposure from the trophy was invaluable.

“We are thrilled to have picked up this impressive American Trophy,” he said. “It’s come to us on the back of our Sidewood Estate 2013 Shiraz’s recent show results including gold medals from the Royal Melbourne, Royal Adelaide and the New Zealand International Shows as well as a 95 point score from the Royal Melbourne judges. 

“With the Sidewood Estate 2013 Shiraz now on five golds and the Mappinga Reserve being awarded the accolades it’s been receiving we’re popping the tops on a few of our Sparkling wines to celebrate here at Sidewood.”
