2022 Sandalford Margaret River Range Rose

Bright, Fruity, Flamboyant

Margaret River

Fresh strawberries and raspberries with a dollop of cream. The savoury spices add to the flavour, bringing to mind summer berry fruits. This wine is dry, has a juicy fruit sweetness and bright acidity on a wellbalanced palate. It's vibrant and glossy texture keeps you coming back for more. Serve well chilled. Don't be afraid to add in an ice block or two if needed.

Winemaker Notes
Shiraz grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the night to ensure the bright fruit flavours were preserved. Transportation to the winery and immediate processing of the fruit has resulted in 8 hours of skin contact time before gentle pressing to tank. The pale, beautiful and vibrant juice was cold settled before racking to tank. Cultured yeast, low solids and cool ferment temperatures in stainless steel ensure the fruit characters are highlighted to their utmost in the resultant wine. At the completion of fermentation, the wine is allowed to evolve on lees for a short period of time before blending and preparation for bottle. This wine style is about youthful freshness and immediate drinkability. Enjoy well chilled, and don't be afraid to add an ice cube.

Meet the maker

Growing up on a wheat and sheep farm is not your traditional start to a winemaking career. However, it was driving through the Swan Valley on the way to Perth that started my interest in grapes. They...

were always beautiful and green quite a contrast to the dry and dusty terrain from the farm. During my final year of studies at the University of Adelaide, I commenced working at Petaluma in the Adelaide Hills, and this seeded my love of Riesling. After 18 months, I decided to explore the world of wine and for the next several years was a flying winemaker, working alternate vintages in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. In the north, this took me to France (Languedoc, Cognac & a couple of days in Bordeaux) and many times to Oregon, USA. This is where my love of Pinot was born. Back in Australia, I also explored Margaret River, Geographe, Clare Valley, SA and Macedon Ranges, Vic. In January 2007, coming back to WA, I joined Sandalford as Winemaker and in December 2012, was offered the Senior Winemaker position. To talk about my winemaking philosophy, is to first understand the vineyards. My role is to let the grapes shine and ensure they reflect the vineyard site they're from. The fruit source for all of our wines, are paramount to their success, and I'm incredibly lucky to have one of the oldest vineyards in Margaret River to work with.
