Winemaking

Sandeman Porto Imperial Reserve is vinified using the traditional Porto Wine method. Hand-picked grapes are softly crushed and, after partial stalk-removal, fermented with maceration allowing the best components of the grape skins to be extracted. The whole process takes place under strict control of both temperature and wine density, making it possible for the winemaker to choose the ideal moment for the addition of wine alcohol, fundamental to halt fermentation and keep Porto Wine natural sweetness. That moment depends on vine varieties, stage of maturation and final sweetness levels required.
