Sandeman

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.

Sandeman, 2016

Vintage Port, DOC Douro
** 99 Points Wine Enthusiast **

The 2016 Sandeman Vintage Port Wine returns to its glory. With an opaque with an almost black colour the wine has an intense, complex aroma. Ripe black fruit, cocoa and chocolate flavours continue on to the palate where floral notes of rockrose are apparent in a long, lingering finish. Firm tannins, full-bodied and with fresh acidity it has structure that will allow the wine to age comfortably for decades.

Sandeman, 2013

Quinta do Seixo Vintage Port

The 2013 Vintage Port Wine from Sandeman is only the second produced in the company’s history from its home vineyard Quinta do Seixo, in the Cima Corgo.

Over its first two years of life the wine was constantly monitored by the wine making team carefully assessing its development before the decision was made to declare it as only the second ever Single Quinta Vintage Port in Sandeman’s long and illustrious history.

Sandeman, 1982

Vintage Port

“The 1982 will long be remembered for its rich colour and its intense grape aroma. It’s a firm, robust wine reminiscent of the 1966…”(David Sandeman). The 1982 Sandeman is now at its ideal moment of maturation showing great elegance and complexity. Very pleasant and at its optimum to be drunk.

*** Exceptional Provenance ***

Vintage Wine and Port have secured a few ultra-rare bottles of 1968 Sandeman's Port. These bottles are of exceptional provenance - they are library stock released exclusively to VWP from the Sandeman Cellars in Oporto.

Tasted by our wine buyer at the Sandeman 20 Vintage Tasting November 2013. "Tawny rim; good nose, some cigar, spice and chocolate, dried fruit. On the palate, ripe and sweet not quite in tune but still quite opulent with integrated tannins. Excellent finish - my first tasting of a '68 and quite a surprise for a generally undeclared year. (Tony Carter, November 2013) - 92 Points (Outstanding).

Sandeman, 1966

Vintage Port
Wine society labels
Excellent Provenance and condition

The Sandeman 1966 is a superb port from a classic vintage. The medium garnet colour has held up quite well with some bricking on the rim, but otherwise this wine is still showing youth and it has the backbone for a long life ahead. Complex layers of cocoa and spice with excellent balance and the velvety mouth- feel that gains extra credit.

Sandeman, 1950

Vintage Port
Embossed capsule | Plain label

Color: Dark tawny with some red left.
Nose: Sweet Christmas spices. Rich, round sugar. Turpentine.
Palate: Some tannins, edgy. On the dry side for Port (which is typical to me for Sandeman). Decent fruit.
Finish: Medium length. Finish seems younger than the Port's age.

Sandeman, 1935

Vintage Port, DOC Douro (OB)

From the excellent 1935 Vintage, Bottled to commemorate George V Jubilee. The port is tawny with some red in colour. Showing little on the nose, perhaps some hints of concentrated redcurrant. Smooth and concentrated on entry; full bodied and with good weight. Blossoms beautifully in the mouth, develops and grows. Explodes on the aftertaste with huge fruit flavours dominating - mature and sweet. Incredible finish! An astonishing wine. After 5½ hours in the glass this had even developed hints of tannins!

Sandeman, 1934

Sandeman 1934, DOC Douro
Mellor & Son- English bottled.

Reviews:
"Deep orange with a brown hue. Treacle and floral perfume on the nose, incredibly dense and intense albeit a little smelly. Dark brown sugar on the palate, with plums and damsons; dense and full-bodied. Deep flavoured aftertaste, big and burly and with an intense finish. Very impressive port."
