Overview

Another full-bodied wine like the 2005 release before this which incidentally picked up a both Top 100 and a Blue-Gold Medal at the 2010 Sydney International Wine Competition. I see no reason why this wine should not be as good if not better given the 2007 vintage conditions. Winemaker

Expert Reviews

"Good depth of colour; a very complex wine that finished its primary fermentation in a mix of French and American oak of various ages; an array of warm spices, cedar and vanilla all add interest to a medium-bodied wine with good balance." Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2011

"Impossible not to enjoy this. It's soft, generous, mouthfilling and delicious - all the big guns of red wine enjoyment. It tastes of sundry summer berries and cedary, coffeed oak, though in truth it all comes across as soft and seamless. Mighty fine wine to drink." Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh, Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010

"Big, rich shiraz with perfumed violet bouquet and very pretty, feminine palate with a silky mouthfeel and gentle, lingering floral flavours right to the end."4.5 Stars - Winestate ( 01 Jun 10)

"This is pretty much as good as Margaret River shiraz gets. Its a dark, brooding red, with rich, concentrated blackberry and dark plum flavours, juicy, velvety texture and powerful, fine, ripe tannins." Peter Forrestal, Sunday Times (20 MAR 11)

"It’s not the cheapest label on the market, but when you want quality it’s the way to go. This shiraz mixes it with the best. Smooth with nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and blackberry flavours. "Rating 91 - Peter Chapman, Coffs Coast Advocate, (06 Jan 11)

"Impressive smoked meats and raspberry aromas lead to a big spicy mouthful with red fruit, black pepper spice and deep-set grape tannins in a finish that lasts minutes." 89 Points - Robert Geddes MW Australian Wine Vintages 2011

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Dark cherry red with a hint of magenta.

Aroma

This wine upon release in March 2010 is still incredibly youthful and will open up and flourish as the year's progress. It is instantly recognisable as a beautiful Shiraz with real savoury notes dominating the bouquet..

Palate

Lovely elegant sweet jube flavour on the palate with some edgy herb and spice notes coming through. The oak, as befits our modern tastes, is restrained and subtle. Beautiful soft finish with plenty of length.

Cellaring

Certainly a wine which will handle careful cellaring for up to 10 years or more.

Food Matching

Great food match with beef, lamb, goat, game and venison dishes particularly if they are combined with spice,

sweet jus or balsamic reductions.

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.
