Gold - International Wine Challenge 2019
The grapes for Sandeman’s Vintage Ports are sourced from the best plots at the Quinta do Seixo and the Quinta do Vau estates in the Cima Corgo sub-region of the Douro near the town of Pinhão. These prime vineyards are on the steep, stone-walled terraces of the south bank of the River Douro and are planted on schist - a slate-like metamorphic rock which fractures vertically and allows the vine roots to dig deep to access water and nutrients. The vines are tended to manually following sustainable practices and the grapes are harvested by hand.
Sandeman's Vintage Ports are some of the most powerful, complex, and elegantly structured wines available, with dark, brooding fruit and incredible depth.
Deep purple in colour. On the nose intense and complex aromas of blackberry, black cherry and plum combine with spicy notes of cocoa, floral hints of rockrose and a subtle minerality. Velvety tannins coat the palate and a crisp acidity carries the layers of flavour onto the harmonious and lengthy finish. This is a powerful yet elegant Vintage Port, with great potential for ageing for many decades to come.
