A wonderful choice for any port lover.
The Word, The Spirit, The Journey, The Craft, The Pioneer, The Hat & Cape
Each specially designed label tells of a different story relating to each pillar of the House of Sandeman ethos. Together when combined in the beautifully crafted special edition wooden case help bring the history and heritage of this most prestigious House to life.
The ports in the collection can be drunk immediately, but will gain complexity if bottle-aged, reaching its peak of quality around its 15th year.
“To mark this exceptional moment in history, The House of Sandeman has created this unique collection highlighting the foresight and drive of the Founder.
Through six individual labels we tell the story of the vision, adventure, hard work, commitment, innovation and the making of a brand logo – THE DON - which is recognised the world over.
I hope that you enjoy sharing this history of the Sandeman family, inspired by a young Scotsman from Perth, and when you are ready open the Vintage 2000 please raise a glass to the future of Sandeman!”
George Sandeman, 7th Generation
“This is a deep-coloured wine with faint brick hues, dominated by aromatic notes of mint cedar and tobacco box. It reveals the presence of spices such as pepper and cinnamon, ripe black fruits and slight chocolate hits, the result of an excellent maturation. On the palate it displays excellent structure, good quality tannins and a very well integrated acidity. The long finish of great complexity shows aromatic notes of cedar and mint, as well as ripe black fruits.”
