This rare and delicious 30 year old port has been aged in specially selected wooden casks allowing gentle oxidation, concentrating its flavours and intensifying the fruit to create the complex flavour characteristic of a 30 year old port.

Rich tawny with amber hints in the glass. On the nose, intense aromas of honey and spices are underscored by deep flavours of dried apricots, hazelnuts and vanilla. The palate balances rich sweet and savoury characters with wonderful elegance, great intensity and an exceptionally long finish. Serve this chilled in a proper wine glass to allow the perfumes to express themselves.

Grapes for Sandeman ports are hand-picked and harvest timing is decided according to the style intended. For tawnies, grapes are picked with an acidity structure which emphasises freshness in the final bottled wine, as this is crucial for creating balance in wood-aged styles. They are also more delicate and aromatic than the grapes used for bottle-aged ports (e.g., late bottled vintage and vintage styles). The grapes are destemmed and crushed before fermentation at controlled temperatures, with skin maceration to extract tannin, colour and flavour. For tawny styles, this process is done in overhead stainless steel fermentation vessels with punch downs and pumping over, unlike for bottle-aged styles ports which are fermented in shallow granite lagares. The moment of fortification with a neutral grape spirit is chosen by the winemaker following strict control of fermentation temperatures and must densities according to the vine variety, maturation stage and the final sweetness required. 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 small, used oak barrels. Over the years, the wines selected for this 30 Year Old Tawny are carefully tasted, analysed and racked from lees. The final blend results from a selection of wines of between 25 and 40 years of age, masterfully blended to maintain consistency and character.
