A new range for Sandalford coming from their Swan Valley plantings: 1840, the new range created to showcase some of the magnificent old vines at the Caversham estate, is so named for the year Sandalford’s founder, John Septimus Roe, established the multi-awarded winery.
Sandalford, 1840, Shiraz, Swan Valley, 2017
For a premium product, I can’t say I’m enamoured with the label, but it’s what is on the inside that counts. Floral and potent nose: with warming baking spices over rich rose petals, raspberry, fennel, cedary oak and a resiny stalky whole bunch line. Effortless shiraz palate redolent with spice. Silky and textured with fine grained, tight tannins. Elegant and pristine.
