Sandeman Tawny Porto
Sandeman Tawny Porto
(search item no. 75574)

PRICE ON 8/27/2014: $14.99

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.

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.
