Specially selected Portos are chosen for ageing in wooden casks, which concentrates their fruit and flavour. The colour 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 flavours - dried apricots, honey, nuts, spices, vanilla - creates an endlessly complex wine that unfolds smoothly and develops in the mouth. Sandeman Porto Tawny 20 Years Old is ready for drinking and does not require decanting but benefits from aeration. Once open, it should be consumed within 2-3 months. Sandeman Porto Tawny 20 Years Old is delightful served slightly chilled as a stylish accompaniment to a rich appetiser such as foie-gras, a strong cheese quiche, salty vol-au-vents or a seafood gratin. Perfect with selected desserts such as a crème brûlée or a tarte tatin, dried fruits or simply a fresh peach. An elegant aperitif when served chilled.
Wine EnthusiastSandeman's long-standing reputation for aged tawny Port is confirmed by this wine. It is poised between fresh fruit and spice, dried dates and a generous golden glow. The wine is at its peak and ready to drink.
Wine SpectatorA bright style, with ginger, singed orange peel, pecan, flan and persimmon flavors that are slightly higher pitched than most tawnies. Ends with fresh cut and focused drive. Drink now.
