Expert Reviews

"Stone-fruits mingle with subtle aromas of cashews and allspice. Palate has good structure and weight, with lively melon/peach-like flavours." 4 Stars - Winestate The Best Wines of 2009 (01/FEB/2010)

"Delightful complexity of fig, melon and lemon-like aromas fill the glass, followed by a rich, lusciously juicy and very flavoursome palate with a long, lingering and very firm phenolic finish." 5 Stars - Winestate's Best Wines of 2009 (01/FEB/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes


Mid-straw with a lemon tint.


A real elegantly styled wine on the nose with classic white stone fruit characters and nuances of subtle vanillin oak.


I’d almost call this medium to full-bodied as opposed to a straight full bodied wine. The reduction in alcohol, oak and malo has had a profound effect on the style of this wine giving it freshness and tightness never seen before. Like the nose the stone fruit characters come to the fore with oak in support. The highlight however is the overall structure and balance of this wine with the acid contributing piquancy to the wine, perfectly in harmony with the fruit-sweetness and mineral textures elements of the palate.

Cellaring Potential

Drinking superbly now it will age gracefully for several more years to come.

Vintage Condition

2008 was a return to what we would classify as a ‘normal’ vintage in Margaret River. After a hot December and January conditions moderated to give us a perfect three months of harvest with no disease in the fruit and no inclement weather..

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.
