Winemaker's Notes:

Sandeman 10 Years Old Tawny is a vibrant premium aged wine, a balance of ripe fruit with oak aged intensity, which highlights SandemanĀ“s quality. Selected Portos wines are chosen for ageing in wooden vats and casks, concentrating all their fruit and flavour. The colour matures from deep ruby through to red amber, producing a delicious and vibrant Tawny Porto. Fruit and maturity are harmoniously balanced in a versatile wine, ideal to match a gourmet meal or entice a good moment.

The vibrant red tawny color of great intensity is typical of this style of aged yet youthful wine. It anticipates the elegant and complex aroma, combining ripe fruit, jam and nuts with hints of vanilla and raisins. In the mouth, Sandeman 10 Year Old Tawny is a most flavorsome wine, fullbodied and appealing, with a persistent finish.

Sandeman 10 Years Old Tawny is delicious served slightly chilled on its own and a surprising accompaniment to a rich appetizer or a strong blue cheese. It is also a perfect match to rich desserts from a tarte tatin, to custards, ice-cream, pudding with figs, nuts and raisins.

Once open Sandeman 10 Years Old Tawny can remain fresh for up to 6 - 8 weeks.

About Sandeman:

The House of Sandeman was founded in London in 1790 by George Sandeman, a determined young Scotsman. From a modest start two hundred years ago as a wine merchant in the City of London, to today's impressive lodges in Oporto and bodegas in Jerez, and the world's best known brand of Port and Sherry, there has been a continuous commitment to quality. The growth of Sandeman Port and Sherries over two centuries has been based on a balance of tradition and innovation, respecting heritage but always seeking improvement. In 1980, Sandeman became part of Seagram; today, as the seventh generation of the family and Chairman of the old firm, George Sandeman continues the Sandeman commitment to the quality of Sandeman Ports and Sherries, and to the future.
