This is a beautifully concentrated wine. Rich and dense, it offers dried fruits, spice and intensity. The wine’s spirit edge acts as a lift, bringing out acidity, honey, walnuts and a complex perfumed aftertaste. Drink now.

Charming, with a flattering mix of golden raisin, bing cherry, quince and kumquat flavors at the core, giving way to orange blossom and date on the finish. Lovely range and detail, with fine underlying zip. Drink now. 625 cases made, 270 cases imported.

The NV 30 Years Old Tawny Porto is a typical Douro blend. It was bottled on June 27, 2018, with a Vinolok stopper and 120 grams per liter of residual sugar. This is an understated step up on the 20, but it increases the power and the complexity levels. Here, you get more grip on the finish but still not much richness. There’s a lively and balanced feel to go with that increased complexity. This oddly seems fresher at times than the 20, even while it is more complex, i.e., more mature. The concentrated and mature flavors are lovely, making this a pleasure to drink. There were 7,500 bottles produced in this release.
Winery
Specially selected Ports are chosen for ageing in wooden casks, Gradual exposure to air, concentrates the flavours and matures the ruby colours to amber, creating the rare and delicious Sandeman Porto Tawny 30 Years Old. The ageing process intensifies the fruit creating the complex flavours characteristic of Tawny Port, a perfect ending to any meal and an inspiration for good conversation. Tasting Notes: Old gold amber colours with the intense aromas of honey and spices, underscored with deep flavours of dried apricots, hazelnuts and vanilla, creating a rich yet elegant combination.

Region: Porto

The magnificent city of Porto - the capital of Portugal - is located near the mouth of the beautiful Douro river, in the beating heart of the Douro wine region. The Douro region has been regarded as one of the most important viticultural region of Europe for several centuries, and was the third region to be officially recognized and protected as a wine region, with laws having been passed in the mid 18th century regarding its status. Porto is, of course, most famous for the production of Port wine, an aromatic and slightly viscous tawny colored fortified wine, with a fascinating history of seafaring, experimentation and innovation. The vineyards used in the region for the production of Porto's wines contain up to a hundred different grape varietals, resulting in the wide range of Port wines on offer today.

Country: Portugal

Most of us are quick to associate Portugal primarily with the excellent fortified wines which come out of the Porto area, but there is much more to Portuguese viticulture than just this. Perhaps the most popular still wines the country produces are the varieties from the Vinho Verde region, which uses grapes that do not achieve high doses of sugar, meaning the wines are at their best when young and full of natural, springy fruit flavors The wines of the Douro region have undergone many transformations in their flavor and character over the centuries; once regarded as a bitter wine, the exporters experimented with fortifying the wine with brandy. After several centuries, vintners found a balance in the modern age which is at once reminiscent of Port wine, yet with the structure and character closer to other fine Portuguese wines. Thanks to the appellation system of Portugal and the strict laws governing wine production, Portuguese wines continue to maintain their reputation for quality and the distinctive characteristics they carry.
