Overview

Very much a "sweet-fruited" wine with luscious dark berry fruits to the fore. The oak is seamlessly integrated and this wine for mind is more on the medium bodied side of life as opposed to a more traditional full bodied style. Velvet like tannins lead to a gentle, lingering finish. A wine which will mature gracefully for another ten years from the vintage date.

Expert Reviews

"Deep purple crimson, the key to understanding this wine is that it finished its primary fermentation (and mlf) in new and 1 year old fine grained French Oak, neatly side-stepping the need for open fermentation; has delicious spice and pepper nuances to its red and black cherry fruit, the tannins fine and long. Rating 95 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2012

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.
