Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

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

Aroma

There is an elegance about this wine on the nose that belies with what follows on the palate. Slightly herbal in nature with fresh gooseberry and box, the nose really is like a fine perfume.

Palate

Gorgeous. Classic Margaret River Sauvignon in every sense of the word. There is such a persistence in both these regards that long after the wine is swallowed one is still able to dwell upon what is a very, very good white wine. Drink well chilled whilst young an vivacious. Perfect with seafood and minimalist at that, go natural.

Vintage Condition

2010 was virtually a perfect year with a dry, warm and drawn out Summer and Autumn. Both sugar and flavour ripening occurred simultaneously resulting in wines with seamless balance. 2010 is a year where the fruit flavours are more pronounced and riper in style. The palate weight is spot-on and the texture of the wines undeniable. A great year if ever there was one.

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.
