Overview

Margaret River saw a slightly cooler start to the growing season. This turned around in late December with warm to hot days and cool to warm nights, which are more consistent with the norm. These ideal ripening conditions have produced whites with great acid structures and flavour profiles. Again all fruit was disease free with all varieties coming off at perfect ripeness.

Expert Reviews

A 79/21% blend from the estate vineyard planted in 1970, one of the first in Margaret River. It has considerable attitude, with grass/green pea nuances a backdrop for the tropical passionfruit and gooseberry fruit given structure by crisp, lemony acidity. Rating 94 - Drink by 2015 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014)

"I always enjoy the softening of the sav blancs with semillon grapes. Here is a lovely blend that has fresh fruit and crispness." Rating 93 -Peter Chapman, News Mail Bundaberg QLD, 24 July 2013

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Very pale straw with a lime hue as one would expect from a fresh new vintage white wine.

Aroma

An elegant ombination of gooseberries, citrus and passionfruit aromas coming through.

Palate

This wine has always been a beacon when it comes to mouthfeel and texture. This year is no exception. The palate has a crisp minerality to it and there is grassy and spice notes in addition to the primary gooseberry and passionfruit flavours. The finish is crisp and dry. Serve chilled, and drink whilst young.

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.
