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

Using traditional Porto Wine technology, this wine was vinified at Quinta do Seixo. The grapes were both from Quinta do Seixo and Quinta do Vau. After a careful selection, the grapes were subject to soft-crushing and destemming before undergoing a very intense maceration, during alcoholic fermentation, via treading in granite lagares at automatically-controlled temperatures.

Maturation

After the harvest, the wine remained in the Douro region, where it was subject to its first racking during the winter. The following spring, it was moved to Vila Nova de Gaia, where it started the traditional aging process in oak casks. The final lot was obtained only further to rigorous selection of the wines, only those of the highest quality being used.

Storage

This wine can be consumed immediately, but will benefit from a growing complexity if aged for a prolonged period in the bottle. Estimated to reach its peak in roughly its 15th year, this wine has the 20-25 year longevity of a 'vintage', after which it will maintain the great qualities of a "cellar wine".

Serve

Over time, a natural sediment will form in the bottle, which should be opened with care and decanted for best results when it has been stored for some years. It is a surprising wine that will benefit from being opened some time prior to consumption. Serve at between 16°C-18°C.

Enjoy

Its elegant and complex profile combines wonderfully with strong cheeses.
