Expert Reviews

Long, fine and evenly balanced, this rather polished and measured cabernet is one of the leafier expressions of this varietal, with quite a pungent aroma of intense dark plums, cassis and dark cherries supported by cedar/cigarboxy oak. Very smooth and polished, its long, elegant palate of vibrant fruit, cedar/vanilla oak and loose-knit tannin reveals pleasing persistence and some leafy undertones.Rating 91 - Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2010 (01/OCT/2009)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark cherry with a magenta hue.

Aroma

Very much a classic “Bordeaux” like nose with ripe berry fruits and a touch of violet. Oak nuances are well and truly integrated in to the bouquet.

Palate

Quite young and fresh still. Certainly ripe juicy dark fruit flavours with textured tannins and a warming mouthfeel. Slightly more herbal and savoury in nature, as opposed to a “sweet” fruit style. No evidence of jamminess.

Cellaring Potential

Balanced with good length, this wine will cellar well under the correct conditions for several more years to come.

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.
