Expert Reviews

The full bells and whistles: hand-picked from the best dry-grown blocks of estate plantings; crushed and fermented in static tanks, finishing its primary fermentation and mlf in new French oak barrels; the best 30 barrels were then chosen for this wine, replete with bottle numbers on the labels. It is pure Margaret River cabernet, blackcurrant and cassis threaded through with positive savoury tannins and oak.

Rated 95 by James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion. (Mar/2011)

It’s ripe but not overly so with blackcurrant and blueberry fruit, aniseed, tobacco and gum leaf, floral top notes and dusty spicy oak. Medium to full bodied, firm and straight backed with clean acidity and firm tannin – the shape of it and the way it bustles through the mouth is really very impressive – has length too. Region and variety both done proud here. Excellent.

Winery Tasting Notes

Appearance: Dark ruby red with an unmistakable cherry hue.

Nose: This wine just oozes both the varietal and regional expressions of Cabernet and Margaret River. Classic leafy red berry fruits with subtle cedar-like oak.

Palate: In days of yore this would have been classified as a fine Claret, such is the elegance and style of this wine. The flavours are of cassis with some rosemary and bay herb characteristics. The oak is beautifully integrated lending cigar box, camphor and chocolate nuances whilst the mouthfeel is one of balance. The finish is soft and long with velvet-like tannins filling in a sense what is a medium bodied wine. Whilst a remarkable wine now, the Prendiville is certainly a wine which will benefit from careful cellar maturation for 15 years or more. A harmless deposit may form in the bottle during this time and decanting is recommended prior to serving.

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.
