2009 will go down as one of the best ever vintages in Margaret River. The cool and slightly wet conditions during the initial growing season led to some yield losses. However, the summer months were again dry and warm without any overtly hot spells. Classic "Indian Summer" conditions then prevailed through in to the autumn months giving perfectly ripened and disease-free fruit with some of the most balanced acid profiles ever seen. In a word, superb.

Expert Reviews

"Bright, clear crimson; estate grown and finished its primary fermentation in new and 1 year old tight-grained barrels, followed by 18 months maturation in those barrels. The oak integration achieved by this method has worked well, for the wine is no more than medium bodied, the fruit vulnerable to any attempt to over extract it. Elegance gets the wine over the line. Rating 94 - Drink by 2024 - JamesHalliday Australian Wine Companion 2013 Edition, page 580, published July 2012

"Savoury and slightly spicy aromas open things with impressive Margaret River shiraz. The aromas show light perfumed touches with dark fruit characters behind. There’s an intensity on the palate yet the balance carries it effortlessly to a long finish. First-rate wine for drinking over the next five to eight years."Ray Jordan, ‘Top 100 Australian Reds, The West Australian Newspaper Liftout, page 9, 5thJuly 2012

Winery Tasting Notes


Dark cherry red with a hint of magenta.


Sweet mulberry characters with subtle spicy nuances edging in.


Very much a "sweet-fruited" wine with luscious dark berry fruits to the fore. The oak is seamlessly integrated and this wine for mind is more on the medium bodied side of life as opposed to a more traditional full bodied style. Velvet like tannins lead to a gentle, lingering finish. A wine which will mature gracefully for another ten years from the vintage date.

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.
