Expert Reviews

Medium-bodied, fruit-driven red blend with just the right addition of oak to supplement the fruit and tannin. Has a leafy plummy fruit character on the finish. Fine ripe tannins and a nice supple finish. Rating 88 - Ray Jordan, West Australian, Ray Jordan (24/FEB/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietals

72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc & 1% Malbec

Colour

Dark cherry red with a magenta hue.

Aroma

Lovely ripe mulberry nose, slightly perfumed and pointing to a rich palate

Palate

Luscious red wine. Dark berry and plum fruit really fill-out the palate. Firm but powdery tannins with great length to the finish. Well balanced nuances of new French oak but the fruit is definitely the driver of this style. Will mature beautifully for several more years to come.

Winemaking Note

2009 will go down as one of the best ever vintages in Margaret River. The cool and slightly wet conditions during the initial growing season led to some yield losses. However, the summer months were again dry and warm without any overtly hot spells. Classic “Indian Summer” conditions then prevailed through in to the autumn months giving perfectly ripened and disease-free fruit with some of the most balanced acid profiles ever seen. In a word, superb.

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.
