Overview

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.

Expert Reviews

Needs to be well chilled but as a fruity white it works well. Crisp apple and dry pear with mandarin overtones. Not overly intense but frisky. Rating 88 - Drink by 2017, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2015).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale lemon in colour.

Aroma

Think of orange rind and quartz minerality.

Palate

Full of orange rind, guava & honeysuckle on the palate, with spicy notes on the finish. Punchy acid gives the wine a defined line and strong finish. Beautiful and fresh now but is known to be a great cellaring wine not unlike Hunter Semillons.

Food Matching

An excellent food wine. This wine will match beautifully with broad range of food, think grilled Octopus through to Chorizo. Serve 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.
