Sidney Wilcox Field Blend

An intriguing blend of 41% Chenin, 30% Muscadelle, 15% Colombard & 12% Semillion; sourced from estate grown low yielding vines in Riverland.

The varietals, harking back to an old practice of ‘blending in the field, are harvested together, co-fermented and then left on the lees to create creaminess and texture. Further complexity is added by the influence of French oak.




Grape Varieties:
Chenin Blanc, Colombard, Muscadelle, Sémillon
Tasting Notes:

Combined melon and stone-fruits with citrus blossom and vanilla. A medium bodied palate, wherin the taste is fresh, ripe and lingering; the finish is dry, smooth and silky.

A sophisticated partner for a large variety of sea food dishes.

About the Producer

Byrne Estate

Byrne Vineyards has resulted from three generations of hard toil in the vineyards. In 1960, Eric and Romla Byrne purchased the Devlin’s Pound property near Overland Corner in South Australia and planted this limestone based vineyard with a range of grape varieties, most notably Shiraz, Cabernet and Chardonnay.

In 1995 they acquired the Morgan (Scotts Creek) vineyard which was established by then owners Penfold’s during the 1970s. Due its close proximity to the Barossa, excellent limestone soils and ideal climate these vineyards were for premium wine production.

Eric and Romla’s sons Rob and Terry Byrne are now joined by Rob’s daughter Petria and have continued the family passion for wine, vineyards and viticulture. Winemaker Peter Gajewski brings a wealth of experience to his role including a term as senior winemaker at Penfolds, mentored by Max Schubert.

Byrne Vineyards is a certified member of Sustainable Winegrowing Australia, dedicated to continuously implement and improve sustainability initiatives. These include automated drip irrigation putting water directly into the roots of the vines, monitoring soil degradation or erosion to minimise further damage and close control of energy efficiency, chemical usage and waste management.

At the heart of their sustainability commitment is the environment at the Scotts Creek Vineyard – which is home to many rare and endangered species including over 73 native flora and fauna, and is one of South Australia’s largest natural wetlands.
