Sandalford Estate Reserve Verdelho 2018 (6 x 750mL) Margaret River, WA

Description:

Vintage

The 2018 vintage was a return to the fantastic conditions that Margaret River is known for. With a wet start to the season in winter and early spring providing a good base of ground water for the vines. November was very dry, perfectly timed with the vines going through flowering and fruit set. After rainfall in both December and mid January, the season changed and we saw an extended dry and warm period through to the end of picking in mid-April. The maximum temperatures were consistent with long term average and the sea breeze providing the essential cool nights that Margaret River is known for. All fruit this season is of exceptional quality and showing great varietal characters.

Winemakers Comments

The Verdelho grapes from our Wilyabrup Estate Vineyard, were machine harvested in the very early hours of the 16th February, when the grapes were at their coolest. After which, the fruit was immediately processed at the winery and underwent a long, slow ferment in stainless steel tanks with a selected yeast strain. Once the fermentation was finished, immediate stabilisation, clarification and bottling occurred. Pristine fruit in a

bottle is more than apt to this style.

Expert Reviews

92 Points - Ray Jordan

Love the verdelhos from Margaret River. This is a beauty. Crunchy, juicy tropical fruit livened with a decent squeeze of citrus. It brings tang and vitality on the palate that really gets this terrific wine singing. Has a nice texture to complete it.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Pale lemon. Orange blossom florals meld with quince paste and a hint of spiciness. This is one of my favourites. Definite floral notes, with a chalky minerality coming through. There are hints of citrus, with oranges through to lemons. This wine is textural and has a refreshing acid balance leading to wonderful length on the finish. It definitely has that drinkability factor. Drink now whilst young or for something different, this wine can be cellared. It will reward you as it evolves with age.

This wine is vegan & vegetarian friendly

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

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.
