Technical Notes

After the harvest, the wines remain in the Douro until the following Spring, when they are taken to Vila Nova de Gaia and enter Sandeman's centuries-old lodges for ageing in oak casks, as required by the Porto Wine traditional ageing system. Throughout the years, the wines are carefully tasted and analyzed by the oenology team who prepares the final blend to keep Sandeman Founder's Reserve´s Ruby Port style and character. The wines selected are usually between 3 and 5 years of age, providing for a mature and intense wine with an average age of 5 (confirm on sell sheets please) years. The final blend is filtered and cold-stabilized prior to bottling.

Food Pairing

Sandeman Founder's Reserve Ruby Port is perfect on its own or served with cheeses or rich chocolate desserts. Serve chilled and in a large wine glass.
