Wines from Margaret River

In Margaret River I did tasting at Sandelford Wines owned by the Prendiville family. Planted in 1970, the original Cabernet and Shiraz vines are some of the oldest in the region.

Unfortunately the Sauvignon blanc Semillon 2007 (92/100) was sold out, but managed to taste Shiraz 2004 95/100; Best of the West 2008) and Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 (94/100). The Shiraz was powerful with a dense, rich palate, and lots of ripe savoury Shiraz character. The Cabernet was stylish with ripe tannins, a firm core, and plenty of deeply intense flavour.
