Expert Reviews

This value-for-money wine is based on some pretty smart fruit. Its been lightly handled to maintain its fruit integrity and it works really well. Light touch of oak and plenty of zippy melon citrus tang. Rating 87 - Ray Jordan, West Australian (03/DEC/2009)

"A nice varietal, “without all the bells and whistles” …acidity on the palate. 3 Stars - Top 40 Wines, Winestate Magazine, (NOV/2008)

Daily Telegraph, (Australia), 28 Nov 09

... good value because while the fruit is usually a multi-region blend, winemaking expertise is high. Dried fig and melon on the nose with a hint of oak and light stonefruit flavours.Jeff Collerson, Daily Telegraph (28/NOV/2009)

This is an acid driven quaffer that marries beautifully with lighter spring or summer dishes, or drink on its lonesome."Rating 15 1/2 - Scoop (OCT/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.
