Overview

Medium bodied with a distinct lusciousness to the palate. A natural high acidity give zest and crispness.

Almost a medium to full-bodied wine with a beautiful palate weight, crispness of texture and lovely fresh tropical fruit flavours which will only develop and become more luscious as the year rolls on. One of the best Verdelhos we have ever made.

Expert Reviews

A superb Verdelho from Margaret River. Has loads of typical stone fruit and fresh lively acid on the palate. The finish is flinty dry with a lingering persistence. Will continue to reveal more on the palate with further ageing in the short term. Rating 91 - Ray Jordan, West Australian (17/FEB/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale honeydew melon.

Aroma

Classic "green tropicals" with guava, lychee and papaya. Very subtle and understated.

Palate

Almost a medium to full-bodied wine with a beautiful palate weight, crispness of texture and lovely fresh tropical fruit flavours which will only develop and become more luscious as the year rolls on. One of the best Verdelhos we have ever made.

Winemaking Notes

After machine harvesting the fruit in the cool of night it was immediately processed and underwent a long, slow ferment in stainless steel tanks with a number of selected yest strains. The fermentation was stopped at dryness prior to being blended, stabilised, filtered and bottled.

Red 5 Star Winery James Halliday, Austarlian Wine Companion 2011 Edition 

"RED 5 STAR WINERY – Sandalford is an outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity.”

Australia’s most pre-eminent wine critic, James Halliday, awards Sandalford Wines the very coveted RED 5 star rating in the Australian Wine Companion 2011 Edition.

Sandalford Wines was established in 1840 and is today privately owned by the Prendiville family.

In the early 1970’s Sandalford was one of the pioneers in establishing vineyards in the Margaret River planting 96 hectares in the sub region of Wilyabrup. It is this old, dry grown vineyard that is the source of the Prendiville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and the Estate Reserve range of wines. These wines under the winemaking expertise of Paul Boulden are superb examples of Margaret River at its best, winning praise from notable wine writers and a series of trophies and gold medals at both national and international wine shows.

A new addition to the Sandalford portfolio is the Margaret River Range of wines positioned at the “midprice point” of today’s premium market. It is the fastest growing segment of the wine market and with Sandalford’s world class resources in Margaret River, this range has been developed to tap into this consumer trend. The wines are sourced from a combination of the Sandalford Estate and other premium vineyards in the Margaret River with wine styles reflecting current consumer tastes for vibrant, up front varietal flavours.
