Winemaking

Sandeman Porto Founder's Reserve 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.

Maturation

After the harvest, the wines remain in the Douro. On the following Spring, they will be moved to Vila Nova de Gaia and enter Sandeman's centuries-old lodges for ageing in oak wood casks. Throughout the years the wines are carefully tasted and analysed by the oenology team who also makes all necessary corrections and prepares the final blend. The wines selected are usually between 3-5 years, providing an average age of 4 years. The final blend is filtered and cold-stabilised prior to bottling.

Storage

The bottle should be kept in a vertical position, protected from light and humidity, at a constant temperature between 16°C-18°C.
