2007
Raspberry
Description

Selected by Sandeman for its classic and exceptional characteristics, Sandeman Porto Vintage 2007, a wine of a single year, will mature in bottle. Remarkable colour and concentrated nose, full and rich in the mouth and showing elegant potential, Sandeman Porto Vintage 2007 exemplifies the Brand´s commitment to quality.

Tasting

Sandeman Porto Vintage 2007 has an opaque purple colour, almost black. The aroma has an excellent intensity, of ripe red and black fruit aromas, and complexity added by spicy and intense hints of pepper and clove. In the mouth, it has a very powerful strike, which is impressively robust. The presence of quality tannins is evident, with good acidity, as well as great aromatic complexity and a long and firm finish.

Vinification

The grapes, hand-picked with optimal maturation, were vinified following Porto Wine\\\'s traditional method. Fermentation took place in robotic lagars and stainless steel vats, with skin maceration under controlled temperature. It was halted through the addition of wine alcohol at the ideal point for each vine variety.

Maturation

These exceptional wines chosen to make up the final blend of this Sandeman Porto Vintage 2007 were taken to the traditional lodges in V.N.Gaia where, after two years, the final blend was bottled with no prior treatment, in a black bottle sealed with a long cork that ensures a good sealing throughout its long storage period.

Storage

Sandeman Porto Vintage 2007 was bottled in 2009 with no prior treatment, in a black bottle sealed with a long cork that ensures a good sealing throughout its long storage period. The bottle should be kept horizontally under constant temperature of 16ºC-18ºC and sheltered from intense light.

Serve

Sandeman Porto Vintage 2007 will naturally throw sediment in bottle over the coming years thus requiring careful decanting. Before opening, stand for 24 hours and then carefully remove the cork. Pour the clean wine into a fresh decanter, being sure to leave the sediment behind. Decanting will also let the wine breathe. Serve between 16ºC-18ºC. Once open, enjoy within 1-2 days of opening.

Enjoy

After passing its maturation period, this Sandeman Porto Vintage 2007 can be thoroughly enjoyed on its own, and will also make a good match to creamy cheeses or Stilton.
