Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale lemon.

Aroma

Perfumed and fruity with scents of the tropics, honeydew melon and an enticing “sweet” nose.

Palate

Just like the nose suggests with beautiful grapey flavours, luscious sweetness without being unctuous and low alcohol really driving home the softness and appeal of this wine.

Winemaking Note

Over the years winemakers have made their sweet white wines from lesser grapes or the pressing and other by-products of the winemaking process. We have taken a different approach and actually pick fully ripened Verdelho grapes from our Swan Valley vineyard to make this wine. These are picked later than if we were to utilise them in a classic dry white style and as such develop beautiful but delicate tropical nuances.

We also stop the ferment early to retain enough grape sugar in the wine to give the necessary sweetness. The benefit of this is that we realise a much lower alcohol content making this not only fruity and sweet but also light-bodied in style. No one can argue the benefits of lower alcohol wine in these times. All in all a great package and a much loved wine which as always

should be served well chilled.

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.
