Winemaker's Notes:

Sandeman Vau Vintage is an exceptional quality, modern style of Vintage Porto which can be enjoyed young, but will age well in bottle. With intense fruit aromas, rich fruit flavours reminiscent of plums and red fruits in the mouth, Sandeman Vau Vintage Porto 2000 is a superb match for chocolate desserts. Serve in large glasses.

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.
