Expert Reviews

. . . this red comprises wines made from a mix of grapes off Sandalford’s own, unirrigated vineyard planted 38 years ago and other Margaret River blocks. Medium-bodied, this has a fresh, spicy red berry nose with a rich, ripe palate displaying persistent bright berry flavours. Jeff Collerson Daily Telegraph 17 Feb-09

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark ruby red with some magenta.

Aroma

Classic Margaret River Shiraz with some perfumed floral notes in addition to the aromatic spices of anise, clove and bergamot.

Palate

This is a medium bodied Shiraz which while certainly being a fruit-driven wine does have added complexity and character from barrel fermentation and maturation. Sweet blackberry fruit and the aforementioned spices all come together to make a fine red wine with opulence and balance. The harmony extends to the long finish. This wine will continue to mature gracefully for up to five years and is a match with any red meat or spicy vegetarian dishes.

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.
