Sandalford Wines was first established in 1840. In the early 1990s Sandalford Wines returned to traditional ownership by way of the Prendiville family. The grapes for this wine were harvested in early April 2003 from three blocks, 13, 14, and 15. The grapes were fermented in small static fermenters. The wine was macerated on its skins for two weeks prior to maturation in new French barriques for 24 months. The purest 20 barrels were allocated to make this wine.
An analysis of the finished wine showed that the pH was 3.49, TA was 6.7 grammes per litre, and residual sugar was 1.1 grammes per litre.
