Tawny Port Wine
Sandeman Very Old Tawny Cask 33
A Tawny Port WinePort Wine
This 50 year old blend of Aged Tawny, laid down in the early 1960s and including wines of up to 70 years of age, was meticulously crafted by head winemaker Luís Sottomayor with the expertise handed down by the 5 generations of master blenders since 1850's. The art of creating such a wine is in the selection of perfectly matured Tawnies of distinct ages, from the vibrant 30 and 40 year olds to the rich and complex 60 and 70 year olds to create a blend.
This Very Old Tawny shows elegance, harmony and intricacy. The first impact of this gold-amber wine is its aroma of great complexity and intensity, with notes of pepper, nutmeg and curry, underpinned by aromatic notes of cigar box and exotic woods such as sandalwood and African rosewood as well as nuts, like almond and hazel. On the palate its powerful flavour is dominated by spicy hints of pepper, curry and nutmeg and its vibrant acidity gives it a great freshness. The finish is long, harmonious and complex.
