Sandeman Launches 2013 Quinta do Seixo Vintage PortoNews
This Single Quinta Vintage Porto Limited Edition is part of Sandeman’s 225th Anniversary celebration
“Sandeman Quinta do Seixo 2013 is a true reflection of the vineyard’s best grapes of two years ago” says Luís Sottomayor, head winemaker. “Although 2013 was a cold and rainy year in the Douro, the truth is that these grapes showed great maturation, and more importantly, the wine has shown a wonderful evolution”.
The new Single Quinta Vintage Porto is the second only in the company’s history from its home vineyard Quinta do Seixo, in the Cima Corgo.
Nearly 30% of the Touriga Nacional component of the blend comes from 100 year old vines, with the remaining Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão and Tinta Francisca coming from vines with an average age of 50 years.
Speaking of the release, seventh generation of the Sandeman family George Sandeman comments: “We are proud to be releasing Quinta do Seixo 2013 Vintage Porto to mark 225 years of Sandeman history. Because it is the first from Quinta do Seixo, where Sandeman sources its best grapes for Port Wine production, it is for us a very special Port to follow the launch of Sandeman Cask 33 Very Old Tawny Porto which kicked off a year of celebration.”
