Sandeman

In 1805 Sandeman became the first port company to brand a cask with an iron brand, giving the wine a guarantee of quality. The Sandeman ‘brand’ was later registered as a trademark in 1877 making it one of the oldest in the world. The iconic figure of the Sandeman Don appeared on bottles in 1928, again one of the first such trademarks ever created.

Tasting Notes

Intense, clean ruby red in colour, it has rich red fruit aromas with a touch of age that creates an elegant array of powerful favours, with the fruit and fire characteristic of young classic Porto balanced with the finesse of age.

Food Matches

Stilton or rich chocolate desserts
