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, 1934

Sandeman 1934, DOC Douro
Neck label
Bottled in 1936 by Findlater, Mackie & Co Ltd, Hove

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."

Sandeman, 1927

Vintage Port

This also did well in a blind tasting of '27s. It is a wonderful wine, with mature aromas of raspberries and roses, medium-bodied, with lovely, sweet, balanced fruit flavors and a long finish. Score: 92
