Sandeman, 1999 Vau Vintage Port, Douro, PortugalRegular price £32.00
Deep garnet in colour. On the nose pronounced aromas of ripe and juicy strawberries, raspberries and red cherries are coupled with hints of dried fruits and a subtle earthiness. On the palate, structured tannins give backbone to the wine and a refreshing acidity carries the complex flavours onto the lingering finish.
Created as an early drinking Vintage Port with more complexity than an LBV but more fruit and softer structure than a classic vintage, Sandeman Vau vintage is a standalone style in the Port world. Vibrant berry fruit, cassis and spices supported by good structure.
