Latest Accolades

Specially selected Ports are chosen for ageing in wooden casks where gradual exposure to air concentrates the flavours and transforms the rich ruby colour to amber, creating the rare and delicious Sandeman Porto Tawny 40 Years Old. The ageing process intensifies the fruit creating the complex flavours characteristic of Tawny Port. A perfect Port to end any meal and an inspiration for good conversation.

Tasting Notes

An intense, deeply flavoured Porto Tawny 40 Years Old, with a massive bouquet suggesting vanilla, oak and honey, and a mouthful of very complex flavours of dried fruits, spices, and nuts. As the wine unfolds smoothly and develops in the mouth, one discovers a superb balance of wood ageing and vibrancy, characteristic of Sandeman Tawny Portos.

Winemaking

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 until the following Spring. Then, they are taken to Vila Nova de Gaia for ageing in oak wood casks. Along the years, the exceptional wines selected for this Sandeman Porto Tawny 40 Years Old are carefully tasted and analysed, racked from lees and all corrections deemed necessary. The final blend results from the strictest selection of wines usually between 30 and 55 years of age, masterfully and skilfully combined to achieve a unique identity, style and consistency.

Storage

The bottle should be kept upright, protected from light and humidity, at a constant temperature of 16°C-18°C.
