The fruit for this wine was machine harvested during the cool of night, March 2011. After crushing the must was inoculated with a Bordeaux Red strain of yeast and fermentation proceeded at an even pace for two weeks until dryness. The wine was then drained and pressed. After MLF the wine was matured for 3 months in contact with effectively 20% new French oak, before blending and bottling.

Winery Tasting Notes


95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4.5% Merlot, 0.5% Shiraz


Dark cherry red with a magenta hue


Rich blackberry and plum on the nose with hints of nutmeg and vanilla spices.


A complex blend of the blackberries and plums evident on the nose, melding with notes of stewed rhubarb and cedar. Smooth, yet firm tannins add great length to the finish. Well balanced nuances of new French Oak, but the fruit is definitely the driver of this style. Medium term cellaring will only add to the complexity.

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.
