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

Specially selected Portos are chosen for ageing in wooden casks, which concentrates their fruit and flavour. The color matures from deep ruby through to amber, producing a rare and delicious Tawny Porto. Maturity and fruit are harmoniously balanced, creating the perfect conclusion to a meal and the inspiration for good conversation.

A rich yet elegant combination of flavors - dried apricots, honey, nuts, spices, vanilla - creates an endlessly complex wine that unfolds smoothly and develops in the mouth. A balance of aged fruit with an oak-aged intensity epitomizes the deluxe quality of Sandeman.

Enjoy with rich appetizers such as foie gras and cheese quiche or desserts including crème brûlée, apple tarts and dried fruit.

Once open Sandeman 20 Years Old Tawny can remain fresh for up to 4 - 8 weeks.

Critical Acclaim

"This has a bright aroma, with notes of lemon zest and flavors of apricot, peach tart and caramel. The long finish echoes the fresh fruit, with lots of butterscotch and nut notes. Drink now."
91 Points

"An elegant tawny, perfumed with soft tannins and a good edge of wood acidity and spirit. The wine is dry, densely flavored, tasting mature, showing a good balance between young sweetness and age, with everything well integrated. "
