Overview

Good modern Australian Chardonnay does not come much better than this. Lovely ripe citrus flavours to the fore with balancing and cleansing acidity on the finish. Medium-bodied style with texture and structure. Chardonnay is the greatest white variety and this wine exemplifies why. A wine to serve cool but not cold and with all great Chardonnays perfect with food with a bit of grunt. Cellaring for the next five to seven years will aid complexity but hey, it looks great now, fresh and alive.

WA - Margaret River

Colour

Translucent lemon rind

Aroma

A gorgeous nose with dare I say a little "funk". Classic peachy nose with some complexing flinty oak notes.

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.
