Sandalford Wines owns one of the largest and oldest vineyards in Margaret River, 93 Ha first planted in 1970. This low-yielding, dry-grown vineyard in the prestigious Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River provides virtually all the fruit for the Sandalford Estate Reserve range. Sandalford spares no expense at any stage of their production to ensure that each wine is a benchmark in it's own right.
Margaret River has once again been favoured with ideal ripening conditions for the 2014 vintage. Over 1000mL of winter rain, meant there was a solid level of sub-soil moisture for the vines. (Storms in late September resulted in lower yields for Chardonnay, but quality wasn't affected.) Mild summer conditions prevailed with cool nights and an almost constant breeze producing grapes which held their natural acid balance and had exceptional flavour development at lower sugar levels. Again, all fruit was disease free, with all varieties coming off at perfect ripeness.
