The highest quality wines from the 2015 harvest were carefully selected and blended to create Sandeman's 2015 Late Bottled Vintage Porto. Aged for around four years, this wine was bottled without filtration, in the accustomed manner for a single harvest wine.

Tasting Notes

A deep ruby colour. This wine has an intense and complex aroma with notes of red and black fruit, forest floor, heather, spices and a slight minerality. On the palate, it has good volume, firm and powerful tannins, an integrated acidity, further notes of red and black fruit and a very harmonious and balanced finish.

Winemaking

Produced using "traditional" Porto Wine technology. Further to the start of alcoholic fermentation, after soft-crushing and partial destemming, intense maceration took place via treading in granite lagares and pumping in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures, in order to extract the inherent qualities of the grape skins. The wine's balance and harmony, as well as its body and structure, results from the selection of suitable grapes and the ideal moment to end the fermentation.

Maturation

After the harvest, the wine remained in the Douro. It was transferred to Vila Nova de Gaia the following spring, where it matured in the traditional manner in oak casks. During this period, it was subject to periodic racking, and various tests and analysis to monitor its evolution. The final blend was made after a rigorous selection process, using wines befitting the quality and style of L.B.V Sandeman. This wine was not subject to routine finishing procedures, and a natural deposit may therefore form in the bottle.

Storage

Although this wine can be consumed immediately, it will reach its peak - in terms of quality - further to aging in the bottle. It is envisaged that it will continue to evolve positively for 10-15 years after bottling. In order to aid this process, allied to traditional finishing procedures, this wine was bottled in black glass to provide protection against the negative effects of light, and corked with a cylindrical stopper identical to that used for Vintage Porto. Store horizontally in fresh conditions.

Serve

Up until its second year, this wine requires no special treatment. After this time, it is recommended that the bottle be stored vertically a day before opening, and decanted prior to consumption. Serve at between 16°C-18°C.

Enjoy

This wine pairs wonderfully with cheeses, rich chocolate desserts, fresh fruit and red fruit tarts.
