Vinification

Sandeman Porto Tawny 30 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.

Maturation

After the harvest, the wines remain in the Douro until the following Spring, when they are taken to V.N.Gaia and enter Sandeman´s centuries-old lodges for ageing in oak wood casks, as required by Porto Wine traditional ageing system. Along the years, the exceptional wines selected for this Sandeman Porto Tawny 30 Years Old are carefully tasted and analysed, racked from lees and all corrections deemed necessary by the tasters are carried out. The final blend results from the strictest selection of wines usually between 25 and 40 years of age, masterfully and skilfully combined so as to Sandeman Porto Tawny´s 30 Years Old unique identity, style and consistency.
