Winemaker Notes
Handpicked Grenache grown on the Sandalford Estate property was destemmed and chilled to a tank press. The chilled must then remained in contact with the skins overnight to impart colour and flavour before draining off to tank. Only the free run juice portion was utilised in making this wine. After completion of fermentation in stainless steel, the wine was then allowed to sit on ferment lees for a brief period to build texture and complexity. The wine was then given a light fining and cleaned up for bottle ready to enjoy now.

Meet the maker

By the time I turned 18, I had become fascinated with wine. I was keen to learn as much about wine as I could and I received some great advice: to work in the industry before committing to any tertiary study....

I was lucky enough to get my start at the cellars at Houghton Wines, here in the Swan Valley. I loved it, and it was the beginning of a career which was to eventually see me spend 20 years with Houghton’s. But first, I wanted to discover what traditional winemaking was like in the northern hemisphere. I took myself off to Burgundy, France, where I worked several vintages learning as much as I could about the craft of winemaking from some the best in the business. Returning to Australia I continued my career, picking up a few awards in the process of learning more and more about winemaking and achieving Bachelor of Applied Science and Oenology at Charles Sturt University, NSW. I was awarded the inaugural Gourmet Traveler Young Winemaker of the Year 2001, James Halliday’s Winemaker of the year in 2009, Winemaker of the Year in Ray Jordan's 2017 Annual West Australian Wine Guide, and I’ve judged extensively at capital city and regional wine shows. Australia makes some amazing world class wines! I’ve been fortunate to be Senior Winemaker at Sandalford Wines since March 2021 and I’m delighted every day by our estates’ old vines, the passion of the viticulture team here, and the outcomes we are able to achieve each vintage.

Vintage Conditions

2022 was dry and hot. The preceding winter and spring rainfall were above average and provided ample ground moisture for the vines to cope with the heat extremes of the summer. Fruit ripened to plan and was harvested with ripe, fresh flavours.
