Sandeman, 10 Year Old Tawny
Grapes destined for the Aged Tawny Ports need to have great intensity of flavour in order to stand up to many years of ageing in barrel. The Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão and Touriga Nacional grapes which make it into the Sandeman 10-Year-Old Tawny are sourced from prime vineyard sites in the Cima Corgo sub-region of the Douro, including Sandeman’s spectacular Quinta do Seixo estate.
On the nose, aromas of mellow red fruits combine with notes of raisins, roasted nuts, caramel and vanilla. On the palate, the sweetness is well balanced by a refreshing acidity which carries the complex flavours onto the lingering finish
