Sandeman Old Tawny Porto 30 Years (750 ml)

About This Item

Overview: It all started in 1790 when the 25-year-old son of a Scottish prosperous cabinetmaker asked for a 300£ loan from his father to set up as a wine merchant in London. This ambitious young man was George Sandeman, the founder of Sandeman, who ended up establishing one of the world’s leading Port and Sherry wine businesses.

From early on Sandeman specialised in these two great Iberian fortified wines and, following a usual practice in those days, began trading not from own offices but from Tom’s Coffee house, on Birchin Lane, London. Business was agreed on a ‘gentleman’s word’ and George soon gained an impeccable reputation, characteristic of The House of Sandeman to today.

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.

Pairing: Blue cheeses, dark chocolate desserts and desserts made with berries and cherries.
