100 Points Wine Enthusiast
"This is going to be a major, impressive wine. All the elements are there: ripe blackberry fruit, powerful acidity, dense tannins and spice. It has the structure to live on for decades. Drink from 2030. ROGER VOSS - Wine Enthusiast"

Wine from Sandeman is an exceptional wine produced from carefully selected grapes exclusively from Quinta do Seixo, a winery situated in the Cima Corgo sub-region, in the Douro Region.

An almost opaque deep red colour. A very intense aroma with balsamic notes of resin, cedar, tobacco box and shrubby touches. Additional spicy notes of black pepper, clove and ginger integrate with undertones of cocoa and chocolate, courtesy of a good maturation. In the mouth, this wine has excellent volume and firm, powerful tannins. Its well-integrated acidity balances notes of resin and spices and invites a long finish of great persistence.

Reviews

"94 Points – Wine Advocate – Mark Squires – “The 2017 Vintage Port Quinta do Seixo is a blend of 42% Touriga Franca, 31% Touriga Nacional, 15% Old Vines and Tinta Roriz and Sousão for the rest. It comes in with 108 grams per litre of residual sugar. Sandeman may not have made a declaration in 2017, but this single quinta is pretty fine, better than or equal to many who did. Powerful, pointed and inky black, not to mention full of flavour, this is beautiful. The mid-palate is not particularly fleshy, and might be a bit lean, but everything else is super. Some aeration did not help it along much—it remained powerful and penetrating, rather closed. This is very fine, but it does need to demonstrate some ability to gain more expressive fruit in the cellar. It may yet be entitled to an uptick. Be prepared to cellar it a bit, though. This was only in bottle about six weeks when seen. There were 810 cases produced, and the price is right. That makes this a particularly great choice for bargain hunters—available and reasonably priced.”
