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.

The 2015 vintage in Margaret River started with an unusually warm winter and plenty of rainfall, followed by mild and windy conditions in November, resulting in a prolonged flowering period. This changed in the second half of December to ideal ripening weather, dry and sunny without any extreme heat events and stayed consistent through to the end of February. The whites all harvested during this period are of exceptional quality, showing intense varietal characters.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale lemon.

Aroma

A restrained blend of grapefruit, peaches, sweet vanilla and caramelised cashews.

Palate

This wine starts with peaches and nectarines, opening to reveal notes of vanilla spiced cashews and butterscotch with grapefruit and lemon citrus characters on the back palate.

Beautifully integrated French oak from the barrel fermentation results in a medium-bodied wine with lovely texture. The cleansing acidity gives structure and length to the finish.

Cellaring Potential

Cellaring for the next 5-7 years will give more complexity for those who like a bigger richer style.

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.
