Tasting Notes

Sandeman Apitiv Reserve has a golden yellow colour. Its aroma has good intensity, with hints of candied orange zest, floral notes, dry fruits and touches of balsamic resin. The wine's aging in wood adds complexity, harmony and richness. On the palate, it has good balance and well-integrated acidity, with additional notes of dry fruit and an elegant, harmonious and persistent finish.

Winemaking

Sandeman Apitiv Reserve is produced following the 'traditional' Porto Wine method. Made from slightly over-ripe grapes that, after destemming and soft-crushing, undergo maceration and alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, where every effort is made to extract the quality inherent in the grape skins. During this phase, the temperature of fermentation and the densities involved are rigorously controlled in order to identify the right moment to add the aguardente”(neutral grape alcohol at 77%) to arrest fermentation and fortify the wine.

Maturation

The wines remain in the Douro until they are transported, the following spring, to Sandeman's wine cellars in V.N. Gaia. There they are aged in the traditional Porto Wine manner in oak casks. Over the years, the wines are carefully racked, tasted and analysed in order to monitor their evolution prior to the final blend. The final blend - with an average age of 7 years - is made from selected wines, ranging from 4 to 9-years-old, with the necessary character for Sandeman Apitiv Reserve Porto.

Storage

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