Overview

This wine was made as a Rose from the very first day in the vineyard. The fruit was picked mid-March and crushed to a press for 6 hours skin contact time. Once the desired colour and flavour was attained the juice was drained from the press and cold-settled. Racking a day later was then utilised to clarify prior to fermentation at cool temperatures. Upon attaining the desired sugar level the fermentation was ceased followed by immediate stabilisation, clarification and bottling. Pristine fruit in a bottle is more than apt to this style.

Expert Reviews

" One of the better Roses based on cabernet sauvignon from the Margaret River vineyard. Lightly leafy on the nose with traces of red currant perfumed violets. The palate is light bodied and beautifully fresh with a persistent lively acid. Excellent current drinking with a little touch of sweet fruitiness."

Rating 90 - Ray Jordan The West Australian Wine Guide 2014

Bright, full pink; a 100% cabernet base does not prepare you for the residual sugar in the wine; for those who like some sweetness in their rose, but not otherwise. Rating 88 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Fuchsia pink.

Aroma

If you think strawberries and cream you would be spot on. Definite hints of summer pudding showing through.

Palate

There are the unmistakable primary characters of berry fruits with a hint of spice, all balanced with a natural acidity producing a refreshing and flavoursome finish. All in all a wine we believe is a benchmark Australian style. Definitely a wine to be served chilled and drink whilst fresh and vibrant.

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.
