A fine wine with ripe berry and dark currant fruit flavours, silky tannins and plenty of backbone and structure making this a medium to full bodied wine style.

Expert Reviews

Fragrant purple plum fruits and straight ahead juicy fruit flavours also has a decent dusting of tannin. Never strays from its easy-drinking designs.3 Stars - Tony Love, Adelaide Advertiser (17/MAR/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes


Light cherry red.


Classic plum and dusty notes.


Lighter bodied easy-drinking style but still with some backbone and texture. Flavours as for the nose.

Winemaking Notes

Immediately after harvest the fruit was destemmed and crushed to 20 tonne static fermenters. Both rack and return and pumpovers were used for extraction and cap management during the fermentation which took place using a selected yeast strain. After fermentation the wine was drained, skins pressed with the pressings going back in with the free-run wine. The wine was then inoculated with a known MLF strain. Post MLF, further racking took place to oak. Following this oak maturation the wine was blended and filtered to bottle.

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.
