Sandeman Vintage Port

sandeman-vintage-port
The famous image of "The Don" makes this the most well known brand of port in the world. The image was commissioned in 1928 by George Massiot Brown.

The company was founded in 1790 by George Sandeman, and today, his descendent another George Sandeman manages the brand. After a spell in the doldrums under Seagram the company has blossomed under the ownership of Sogrape. Under the stewardship of the head winemaker Luis Sotamayor the company has focused on quality and has produced some very good Vintage ports from 1997 onwards. The 2011 Vintage Port is outstanding. The recently released Quinta do Siexo (Single Quinta) bridges the gap in the range between the very good LBV's and the Vintage Port in years that are not declared.

DELIVERY EARLY 2019

Sandeman are delighted to announce a full declaration for our 2016 vintage port.It has been five years since the last release, but according to winemaker Luis Sottomayor, “As soon as the grapes arrived at our Quinta do Seixo winery, we knew this was the best we had seen since the last declaration in 2011”.

Vintage Report
2016 will go down in Port Wine’s history as a top-quality vintage. An unusual year in terms of weather, a mild and dry winter gave way to a persistently wet spring putting the potential for a high-quality harvest in doubt. A mild summer with the occasional heatwave rescued the year with a perfect balance of daytime heat and night-time cold allowing the grapes to mature slowly.

Sandeman Vintage Port, 2015

New

Quinta Do Seixho Vintage Port in presentation box.

*** 94 Points - Wine Enthusiast ***

Sandeman Quinta do Seixo 2015 Vintage Porto is an exceptional wine produced from carefully selected grapes exclusively from Quinta do Seixo, a winery situated in the Cima Corgo sub-region, in Douro Region.

An almost opaque deep red colour. A very intense aroma with balsamic notes of resin, cedar, tobacco box and shrubby touches. Additional spicy notes of black pepper, clove and ginger integrate with undertones of cocoa and chocolate, courtesy of a good maturation. In the mouth, this wine has excellent volume and firm, powerful tannins. Its well-integrated acidity balances notes of resin and spices and invites a long finish of great persistence.

Sandeman Vintage Port, 2013

Late Bottled Vintage Port

The 2013 Sandeman LBV is a full and fruity late bottled vintage. On the nose, the wine is intense and complex with aromas of balsamic, rose, basil, red and black fruits, as well as spicy notes of black pepper. On the palate, this wine has a lively acidity and robust tannins, complemented by an incredibly balanced finish.

Sandeman LBV was produced by the traditional Port method, with a long, intense maceration during alcoholic fermentation with the aim of extracting tannin, colour and flavour from the skins. This was done both by foot-treading in traditional granite lagars (shallow vats), and by pumping over.

Sandeman Vintage Port, 2011

Vintage Port

Reviews
"From c. 30 year old block planted vines at Quinta do Vau and Quinta do Seixo (Cima Corgo) this blend comprises 40% Touriga Franca (according to Sottomayer, “the strongest, most structured variety”), 40% Touriga Nacional (“elegance and harmony”), 10% Tinta Roriz, 5% Tinta Cão (“for good acidity”) and 5% Sousão (“to increase colour”). It is a marvellously mineral Port with deep, dark reserves of inky fruit well supported by a charge of sootily fine, schistous tannins. A tightly focused laser beam of blackcurrant and glossier cassis fruit is laced with notes of liquorice and cedar and, as it opens up in the glass, tremendous lift of eucalypt and violets.

A superb port from a classic vintage.

Complex layers of cocoa and spice with excellent balance and the velvety mouth- feel that gains extra credit. Drink now to 2020
