Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Selected from the lighter wines of each year, this Porto is chosen for ageing in small oak casks to develop its style. Sandeman Tawny Porto has the fruit and style of great Porto, but with an added finesse.

Clear red amber colours with a light intense body, open up to aromas of vanilla and evolved dried fruits. The elegant harmony and fresh flavour of red fruits unfold in the mouth and combines with the complexity of wood ageing and a good finish evoking raisins and tender hazelnuts flavour.

Sandeman Tawny Porto is a delicious accompaniment to any dessert with caramel, such as crême brulée or tarte tatin, or even strong blue cheeses like Roquefort. To be more daring, match with foie gras or a creamy seafood vol-au-vent.

Once open Sandeman Tawny can remain fresh for up to 4 - 8 weeks.
