Expert Reviews

91 Points A floral bouquet, with stone fruit and citrus on the delicate but focused palate; very good example of unwooded chardonnay. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09

Tall sweet classic, beautifully structured with crisp citrus fruit and perfumed floral notes. Winestate May-09

Some nice green pea aromas and crisp flavours. Winestate Apr-09

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw.

Aroma

Restrained peachy fruit on the nose with a flicker of citrus coming though.

Palate

Certainly a warmer, richer style than the Classic Dry White as it should be. Light to medium bodied in weight with beautiful stone fruit characters coming through. There is a real elegance to this wine with a lovely minerally textured mouthfeel on the finish.

Food Matching

A great food match with any chicken or richer seafood dishes.

Cellaring Potential

Certainly a fresh, fruit-driven style which will keep for one to two years post-vintage but best consumed chilled whilst young.

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.
