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.

Margaret River enjoyed an amazing period of warm weather for the vintage period in 2012. All fruit was disease-free and once again there were no issues in achieving perfect ripeness for all varieties. The year was fantastic, particularly for the red varieties. All showing beautiful flavour development and ripe tannins.

Expert Reviews

Estate-grown grapes commenced fermentation in small static fermenters, the must transferred to new and 1yo French barriques to finish fermentation, and spent 18 months in those barrels. This is the epitome of elegant, medium-bodied shiraz, with red and black cherry, blackberry and spicy fruit flavours; while the barrel ferment oak characters are obvious, I like them. Rating 95 - Drink by 2025, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2014).

Solid shiraz. Plum, beefstock, musky vanillin, dry liquorice and dark cherry flavours, with lift from peppercorn and general woody spice notes. It has an elegance. And is lengthy, with filigreed tannin picking out the finish. Not a lot of spark but well put together. Rating 91 - Drink by 2025, Campbell Mattinson, (MAR/2015).

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.

Cellarine Potential

A wine that 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.
