PORT AND PORT STYLE

Port and Port Style - VAU VINTAGE PORT, Sandeman

1999 VAU VINTAGE PORT, Sandeman

Bin: 973
Alcohol Percentage: 20.5%
Grape Variety: A blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Amarela and Touriga Franca; fermented in traditional open ‘lagares’ with robotic punchng down; then taken the following spring to Vila Nova de Gaia for 2 years ageing in small, used oak barrels
Producer: From the website of the UK agents for Sandeman:
"There are few more iconic images in the world of wine than the ‘Don’, the logo created for the Sandeman family in 1928 by George Massiot Brown. The cape was modelled on the attire worn by university students in Porto, while the wide-brimmed hat was a nod to the family’s presence in Jerez. Today, the wines are good enough to be every bit as famous as the image of the Don. This hasn’t always been the case, but since Sogrape bought Sandeman from Seagram in 2002, the major investment that has taken place in the vineyards and the winemaking has seen them rise to the top of the tree in Port. The production of Port requires patience and a long-term vision, something which explains why families like the Guedes and the Symingtons are the major players in the Port business today."
Old Bridge Rating: Vau is Sandeman's 'second' Vintage - made the same way as Vintage Port but less intense and (much) less expensive
