2017 Sandalford Winemakers Shiraz


The Winemakers Range is all about delivering quite simply the best Western Australian wine at the best price. Quite simply, “Bang for your buck!” These wines are a blend of both the Margaret River and Swan Valley regions. In other words we have the riper, richer notes from the Swan with the cooler climate, more elegant and sophisticated characters from Margaret River. There are no lashings of oak and winemaking artefact here, just great fruit-driven wines from vines up to fifty years of age. These wines are all about balance, harmony and drinkability without burning a hole in your purse or wallet! So go on, have a crack and let us know the outcome! As always, enjoy in moderation.




Western Australia


Here I was last year saying 2016 was a challenging vintage … 2017 certainly topped it. A lot of rain fell in January and February. The Swan River was as full as I’ve ever seen it, yep it flooded - it’s definitely not the norm to see a hay bale floating down the river! The growing season was much cooler than normal – the grapes were picked 3-4 weeks later than normal. This longer ripening time means the vines had more time to build excellent flavour concentration within the grapes.


Usual stuff here …Ben (with some help) picked it and Mark & Greg crushed it into the fermenter. Mark rehydrated a Shiraz yeast and then it was fermented. It was on skins for about a week before being pressed to separate the wine and skins. It was then left for a small time to mature before bottling.


Nothing technical here, this wine is all about the fruit, & what’s not to love about Shiraz. Full of berries – blackberry & mulberry for me, a bit of spice, szechuan pepper and star anise. Drink now for maximum fruit impact.


JAMES HALLIDAY RED 5 STAR WINERY 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011

“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. Wines are released under the Element, Winemakers, Margaret River and Estate Reserve ranges, with Prendiville Reserve at the top.  Exports to all major markets”
Australia’s leading wine critic, James Halliday, awards Sandalford Wines the very coveted and extremely prestigious RED 5 star rating in the Australian Wine Companion 2018 Edition, page 590, released 3rd August 2017.


“Sandalford Wines have been adorning our tables since the 1840’s, and the combination of experience and innovation places today’s winery high on our list of reliable, premier local wines. During the last decade, both the whites and the reds have continued to improve several notches. We put this down to concerted energy going into the winery’s cooler climate Margaret River operations, where fruit quality is second to none on a global scale.  Sandalford is able to draw on a range of grape varieties from the Swan Valley and Margaret River.  But it’s the wines from down on the cape (Margaret River) that keep pulling in the accolades and the awards.” All the Best from Perth’s West, Peter Rigby.  

“Sandalford Wines is a true institution in Western Australia. Established in Perth’s Swan Valley in 1840, there is a rich history to this pioneering company which was one of the first to recognise the potential in Margaret River, establishing a vineyard there in 1970.”
Mining Chronicle, Karl Franzen, June 2011, Page 35

“Sandalford has well and truly leapt into the big league of premium producers in WA, having now completely transformed itself to a Margaret River wine operation.  The Estate Reserve and Margaret River Range are entirely from Margaret River. ”
Ray Jordan’s 2011 WA Wine Guide, published October 2010, page 151  

“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 released 28th July 2010.

“Producer of the Year, and Winemaker of the Year:  Sandalford Wines”
