It's sumptuous and rounded on the palate with attractive sweetness and velvety texture leading to a lovely layered finish. A lovely Port to sip and savour, it will also be stunning with a rich dessert. Sam Kim; The Wine Orbit The tradition of making Port has been handed down in the rugged Douro valley unchanged for centuries. The valley is flanked by steep, rocky slops of schist, and is the birthplace of this exceptional wine. The rain batters the hillsides in winter, then comes the spring with its bitter gales and hailstorms that eventually give way to the scorching sun of the hot, dry summer. During fermentation, grape brandy is added to stop the fermentation process to leave the wine with a touch of residual sugar. The wine is then aged a minimum of three years in barrel before being released.
The intense red tawny colour with shades of brick, typical of this style of aged yet youthful wine, anticipates the elegant and complex aroma, combining ripe fruit, jam and nuts, with hints of vanilla and raisins. In the mouth, Sandeman Porto Tawny 10 Years Old is a most flavoursome wine, full-bodied and appealing, with a persistent finish.
