Sandeman Porto Vintage 2011
The wine is complex yet elegant in character. Almost opaque, it is purple-deep crimson to the rim. On the nose it entices with aromas that include blueberry and cassis, notes of cedar and cigar boxes as well as hints of nutmeg, saffron and black pepper. On the palate, its balance impresses. The lively, powerful, close-knit tannins are integrated with the elegant acidity to support the rich flavours of ripe red berry fruits and the cedar notes from its time in oak. The finish is persistent and memorable.
