Expert Reviews

5 Stars & Best Wine of 2008. Lovely, soft, fresh varietal bouquet and lively sauvignon blanc characters of green bean, asparagus and citrus obvious on the palate. Incredibly fresh with lean acid. “Love it” said one judge Winestate Annual 2009 Jan-09

4.5 Stars. "A blend of Margaret River semillon and sauvignon blanc, the Sandalford is carefully crafted with an edge in elegance and finesse over its rivals. Crisp citrus character, hints of green herbs, some nuances of passionfruit and guava and refreshing acidity amount to a pleasant white. " Paddy Kendler Herald Sun 17 Feb-09

Star Recommendation. "Deserved winner of trophies at the Adelaide and New Zealand Intertiol Wine Show, this is truly a classic dry white. A 70/30 blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, it has wonderfully ripe tropical fruit flavours, which abound in a clear and crisp wine of great balance. " Dr Peter Hay Australian Doctor Feb-09

4 Stars. Leaner style with some sweet capsicum aromas and sweet lemon flavours that build up along the length of the palate. Winestate May-09

92 Points. Tropical fruit balanced by a slight herbaceous edge; very good texture and fine and long on the finish. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale lime as befits a fresh, new vintage of white wine.

Aroma

Lovely, elegant, perfumed bouquet of fresh cape gooseberry and manage tout.

Palate

Certainly a light bodied wine which is just so easy to drink. There is a real minerality to the palate and those flavours seen on the nose translate beautifully to the palate. As reflected in the vintage the acidity is perfectly judged and the wine finished with a zesty crispness and harmonious balance.

A worthy follow-up to the multi trophy winning 2008.

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.
