Sandeman Tawny 40 Years Old is produced by the traditional Porto Wine method. The hand-picked grapes undergo stalk-removal and crushing before fermentation, under controlled temperatures, with skin maceration to extract the best components. The addition of wine alcohol at the ideal moment sets the balance between the wine´s body and bouquet. This moment is chosen by the winemaker following strict control of fermentation temperatures and densities, the later depending on the vine variety, maturation stage and the final sweetness required.
A wine of great complexity, it is excellent served on its own or with a coffee, a small piece of chocolate of fine cocoa or even a cigar. It also goes very well with nutty desserts as well as more elaborate sweets and with intense cheeses.
Specially selected Ports are chosen for ageing in wooden casks where gradual exposure to air concentrates the flavors and transforms the rich ruby color to amber, creating the rare and delicious Sandeman Tawny 40 Years Old. The ageing process intensifies the fruit creating the complex flavors characteristic of Tawny Port. A perfect to end any meal and an inspiration for good conversation.
