Winemaker comments

A luscious, opulent and unique dessert wine from Western Australia's sun-drenched Swan Valley.

Tasting notes

Colour

Deep amber tawny.

Nose

Rich raisined rancio characters highlight this unique sweet white dessert wine.

Palate

The richness suggested in the bouquet becomes obvious on the palate, and is the product of sun ripened Swan Valley grapes harvested at optimum maturity. The resultant wines are given extended maturation in old oak barrels to achieve an even greater degree of richness and complexity, before final blending and bottling.

Reviews

  • A sepia toned offering comprising of a pedro blend, Sandalera is spun sugar on a raisiny spool. Powerful the trinity of rancio, butterscotch and toffee. Timbery oak features on the forefront providing a sweet cinnamon lift. Unapologetically upfront and 'in ya face', there is an interplay with a smidgen of young freshness. The brandy spirit is slipped neatly under the covers and rounds off this delivery superbly. Smooth like Egyptian cotton.
    Jason Boudville, Spice, Winter 2009
  • 92/100. Lots of rancio nuttiness, with good fruit concentration and quite fresh for the style; the old material contributes to complexity.
    James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2009, July 2008
  • A classic, one of the great fortifieds of the country.
    Stuart Gregor, SCOOP Magazine, Autumn 2007
  • This may well be Western Australia's best kept wine secret. WA for one reason or another, produced few iconic dessert wines but with this blend of Pedro Ximenez and Muscadelle grapes Sandalford has created a wine worthy of the numerous medals it has received. The nose is full of toffee and raisins and carries through into a wine tasting of rich toffee and dates. This is a classic 'sticky', none of the old school tawny flavours here just sweet, sunny smoothness that encapsulates all four seasons of Western Australia in a bottle
    Brisbane Lawyer, 15 September 2005
  • It is fortified like your average muscat or tokay and the result is an extraordinarily intense wine with malty, nutty toffee flavours and incredible length. This wins a trophy or gold medal every time it enters a show in Western Australia and is unquestionably that state's greatest fortified wine.
