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

The 2007 vintage has an opaque purple color, almost black. The aroma has an excellent intensity, of ripe red and black fruit aromas, and complexity added by spicy and intense hints of pepper and clove. In the mouth, it has a very powerful strike, which is impressively robust. The presence of quality tannins is evident, with good acidity, as well as great aromatic complexity and a long and firm finish.

After passing its maturation period, this vintage can be thoroughly enjoyed on its own, and will also make a good match to creamy cheeses or Stilton.

Sandeman vintage porto will naturally throw sediment in bottle over the coming years thus requiring careful decanting. Before opening, stand for 24 hours and then carefully remove the cork. Pour the clean wine into a fresh decanter, being sure to leave the sediment behind. Decanting will also let the wine breath.

Selected for its long cellaring potential, Sandeman vintage porto will age well for 20 years from harvest date.

Critical Acclaim

"This has a great black color, with crushed blueberry and blackberry on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with chewy tannins and a slightly mouthpuckering finish. Not quite as impressive as I remember from barrel, but one of the best Vintage Ports from Sandeman in a long time. Best after 2017. 500 cases made."
91 Points

"Full medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of crushed blackberry and black cherry, licorice and violet pastille, complemented by a smoky minerality. Dense, deep and quite gripping, with considerable power to the black fruit and mineral flavors. Classic vintage port with real thrust, and not at all overly sweet. Finishes with substantial broad, fine tannins and lingering spice and licorice notes. A big success. "
91 Points

"An immensely tannic wine, dark and solid. The fruit at this stage is less apparent, with the spirit and structure dominant. A wine to watch as it develops, and probably for aging."

Learn About Port

Port Wine Port is a fortified wine that is made by adding brandy during fermentation. The addition of spirits kills the yeasts, which in turn halts the fermentation process.
