Expert Reviews

91 Points. Deliciously vibrant, lively and fresh; lemon/citrus/mineral notes interwoven on bouquet and palate, then a bright, fresh finish with a farewell of passionfruit. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09

"Outstanding wine. Lime and herbal notes on the nose with an intense powerful palate merging some vibrant grassy herbaceousness with a touch of crunchy tropical fruits." West Australian, Ray Jordan (Australia), 20 Nov 08

92 Points. "It’s beautifully balanced - the two varieties join together to form a very enjoyable wine…very good value." 'The Keys Review of Wines (KROW), Tony Keys (Australia), October 2008

91 Points / Top Aussie White. "These Margaret River varieties have typical snow pea, twiggy aromas together with candy and peppermint. This has more palate depth and persistence than most of its peers. One often gets the feeling Sandalford tries that extra bit harder. Good drinking now." Good Living - Sydney Morning Herald, Huon Hooke (Australia), 16 Sep 08

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Very pale lime as one would expect from a fresh new vintage of white wine.

Aroma

Supremely aromatic with lifted notes of nettle and box wood. Underneath lurks a touch of fresh grapefruit hinting at the Semillon portion of the blend.

Palate

Some real pizzazz here! Cracking herbal notes with some punchy gooseberry and fine nettle flavours giving complexity and length to the palate. Fine acid balance again highlights the strength of the 2009 vintage making this wine one not to disappoint.

Cellaring Potential

Drink well chilled whilst young and vivacious.

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.
