20 Year Old Tawny Port
Description and Reviews:
A n outstanding Tawny Port Wine from Sandeman Port. A rich yet elegant combination of flavours - dried apricots, honey, nuts, spices, vanilla - creates an endlessly complex wine that unfolds smoothly and develops in the mouth.
Sandeman Porto Tawny 20 Years Old is produced by the traditional Porto Wine method. The hand-picked grapes undergo stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperature, with skin maceration so as to extract the best components. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine´s body and bouquet. This moment is chosen by the winemaker following strict control of fermentation temperatures and densities, the later depending on the vine variety, maturation stage and the final sweetness required.
"4 Stars - Trace of evolution. Cooked red fruits, light coffee, caramel. Well integrated, light spices. Medium to full-bodied. Pleasant. Drink up to 5 years." - Decanter Magazine
"Amber with a coppery flash. A very appealing nose, still amazingly fresh and vibrant. There are plenty of dried red berry characters, with raisin and dried flowers, sweet toasted nuts and gentle spice. Tasting bright and vivid for a 20 year old. Silver Outstanding" - International Wine & Spirit Competition 2014
Excellent - please note that 20 years refers to the average age of the contents. this is a blend of multiple vintages to achieve a constant house style. This is included under the vintage as many customers like these bottles to celebrate a 10 years anniversary.
