Shiraz 96%, Viognier 4%
The establishment of Sandalford Wines in 1840 coincided with both the first European settlement at the Colony of Perth and birth of Western Australia's world famous wine industry. In 1970, the Company was one of three initial pioneers of the Margaret River wine region (275km south of Perth and today considered by many as one of the world's truly great premium wine growing appellations) when the first vines were planted at its 300 hectare vineyard located there.
What The Critics Say
Winemaker notes on current 2017 vintage
"Abundant sweet berries - mulberries, blue berries and blackberries, balanced with savoury spices - fresh nutmeg, white pepper and star anise. This wine opens with a generous selection of sweet berry fruits, ranging from raspberries through to the richer blackberries. Opening up, there are layers of savoury spice and dark chocolate. The French oak adds vanilla to the mix. The tannins are like velvet, leading the wine to a gentle and lingering finish on the palate. Medium term cellaring will only add to the complexity of this wine."
90/100 James Halliday (2016 vintage)
"Machine-harvested at night, 7% viognier crushed with the shiraz and co-fermented, cultured yeast, 14 days on skins, matured for 3 months on (not on, not in, suggesting the use of staves) 20% new French oak. It's a powerful wine, needing time to slow down its full gallop." Drink by 2026
Rated a 'Red 5 Star Winery' by James Halliday
Rated Red 5 Star in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011. "Sandalford is an outstanding winery regularly producing wines of exemplary quality and typicity.” "Sandalford is one of Australia's oldest and privately owned wineries. In 1970 it moved beyond its original Swan Valley base, purchasing a substantial property in Margaret River that is now the main source of its premium grapes"
